This weekend I got to give back a little bit. My mama asked me to go with her company to volunteer at St. Mary’s Food Bank. It was incredibly early, though completely worth it.
We got there with a couple other company groups and got sorted out through the warehouse along assembly lines. I started at the front and was in charge of pulling boxes off palettes and separating them for the next group to put paper sacks in. I got incredibly filthy, such a different experience than sitting in an office.
After just an hour and a half, we had loaded 18 palettes with 972 meals equalling out to 14,000 pounds of food. The saying many hands make light work could not have been more true.
Thank you CLA for allowing me to help out this past weekend!
