I had the opportunity to do something today that really, I’m sure we could ALL do more of. VOLUNTEER. A couple of us from WDBJ7 took time out of our morning/afternoon for United Way’s Day of Service. Hundreds of companies let their employees participate in a community-based volunteer project.
We happened to be at an elementary school this morning. My job? To weed, rake, hoe and mulch! What! I’m not a yard girl, not by any means. In fact, it was a kind of “learn on the job” assignment. Did I mention it was 90+ degrees? Yikes.
I left though with a feeling of accomplishment that only comes with service. I realize this particular project won’t directly change a child’s life or anything of that magnitude; but, I helped my community. Could you imagine how much better all of our communities would be if we all pitched in?
