I worked in the Learning Center playing a coloring game. I enjoyed talking with the kids.
We worked the Freemont Carnival, I did face paint and read books.
We walked the Phi Beta Phi street and picked up trash
I volunteered at the valentines dance at the elementary school. I got there at 4:30 and helped decorate/set up and then worked the craft table once the dance started.
I volunteered at one of the alumn's events at bass pro. I was in charge of childcare. Two other women and myself took care of eight kids between the ages of a 7 month old to a 7 year old. We were in a conference room with lots of stuffed animals, which was not the best setting for a bunch of kids spending hours away from their parents. The Pi Phi Alumna and the parents were all very grateful. I then helped clean up at the end of the night.
On Friday afternoon I worked the Lemonade For Literacy stand outside of the commons. We ended up having to move the stand inside because the rain picked up but we still had a pretty good turn out and it was fun. I really enjoy being able to do things on campus with my sisters because then everyone gets to see that I am a Pi Phi.
Last Wednesday the Boys and Girls Club came to spend an evening with us. We met in the Hobblit Suite. We talked with the kids, getting to know their interests. Then we fed them dinner and played games. We played several rounds of bingo with lots of cool prizes, yard games like ring toss, and made bracelets/necklaces at a craft table. After just a short period of time the kids were hugging us and saying "I love you". It was very cool to see how just a little quality time can positively impact someones day, mine included.
