Our four hour shift began with introductions, as we had several people from different credit unions join us for our event. We had representatives from Coastal and Local Government Credit Union and even some kids and significant others of employees… I love that we are spreading the word of “People Helping People!” and getting others to take part in our events!
With a record number of nine volunteers, we worked with the kitchen manager to bring a hot dinner to the residents of the Mission. Dinner was a smorgasbord of tastes from hamburger steak to BBQ chicken and lasagna to donated Chik-fil-A sandwiches. We had mashed potatoes to go with the steak and green beans, butter beans, and field peas to round off the vegetable choices. We had a blast serving the residents and truly enjoyed the kindness and gratitude they showed us for being there.
After dinner was served, we assisted the staff with cleaning the kitchen and spent a few minutes talking with the kitchen manager about the difference the RRM makes in the lives of people in need. The RRM is a great organization that works solely off of donations. It’s truly amazing the things they’ve accomplished!
Be on the lookout for our next volunteer opportunities coming up! We have another event scheduled with the RRM in August and a DeConstruction event with the Wake County Habitat for Humanity sometime this fall!
Thank you to those who volunteered and took time out of your busy schedule to share a smile with people who need one!
