Volunteering

Tuesday, September 29, 2020

Hi guys!

Just a quick little note....I decided to start volunteering at the farm where we get our weekly veggie/fruit box from as I stand behind what they are doing.....

Not only are they keeping things local , and keeping local farmers in business then going to the big chain stores to get product from where ever it comes from and filled with loads of chemicals to " keep it fresh" during the duration while it is in the store....but they pull in other local companies to have as an add on option in your boxes...for example: I can get local farm eggs, local gluten/dairy free bread and bread products, local honey, apple cider, coffee ...and the list goes on and on...I love this idea! and the BEST part is for every box bought/sold - one box goes to a family for free...they also do bags of goodies for the community...for free!

So can u see why I choose this to do a little volunteering from?

Well I committed to every Monday....not sure if it will be every Monday but that is what I committed too....

This past Monday I went in and did my first shift....Did a little light cleaning, did the fruit stand at the front of the farm...loaded up some of the bags to be delivered to the community....and unloaded a truck load of 50 pound bags of potatoes and bring them into the hub....

My shift was done at about 2:30 and got a chance to deliver a bag of goodies to some homeless/drug addicted individuals....and that was when It really hit me on what this company actually does!

I am so thankful to be apart of this...and look forward to paying it forward....

After my shift last night and all that lifting of 50 pds of potatoes came home and did back and chest workout...
Then went to work and cleaned for 90 min..... this client is all floors - vacuum and moping ...my arms and back are rubber right now! taking today as a rest day....

Tomorrow I will be back at it!

Take care
Stay safe
Stay true to yourselves!
Rock on!
