I really enjoyed learning about these nonprofit organizations and what they do to help women in domestic or sexual abuse situations and refugees. I would love to volunteer after learning more on how I can help! I really enjoyed making goodie bags for the kids in the women’s shelter as well. :)
I did Hounds on the Town today and took Athena out to walk on the greenway for a bit! She walked well on a leash and we both really enjoyed the warm weather today!
I took Bowser out for Hounds on the Town on the greenway last week and we had a great time! He was so sweet and was very easy to handle when it came to people passing by whether with other dogs or on a bike, he was not difficult at all to keep on track!
I had a great time volunteering at this event! All of the little girls were adorable and dressed up as their favorite princesses, it was PRECIOUS! I worked the craft table and basically just would cut string for the girls to make bracelets and hand them out, I also helped pass out coloring pages. I loved this event and getting to talk to all the cute little princesses!
I went to the Animal shelter and helped fold laundry, and walked a couple of dogs. I walked Frank and Bobby and they are both well trained, older dogs who were so sweet! I loved spending time there today.
I left early for Thanksgiving break, so I was able to volunteer in the child's center of my home church, Church of the Resurrection. I was in the "firefly" room with the 1-2 year olds. We had 6 boys come in; Lawson, Harrison, Jett, Rhyder, Elliot, and Sam. Rhyder had a really tough time and cried the most but liked being held. I also held Jett quite a bit because he was scared of the bubbles we would blow in the room, ironically, to cheer the other little guys up! I had a great time with these little ones and am excited to serve again next weekend!
I went to the animal shelter and did Hounds on the Town! Hannah and I took out a dog, Basil, for a quick walk around campus to socialize her and then took her back to the shelter!
I attended greek getaway and we broke out into groups and did interactive activities. We also discussed topics that related to our chapter's positions in the community and what purpose our executive board plays and ways we can get involved, and the ways our involvement would impact our chapter and community positively. The games we played were telephone, labyrinth, lowering a hula hoop to the ground with one finger, and we did a privilege walk. The privilege walk was very eye opening to see how privilege can affect our lives and the factors that can add to or detour from privilege.
I am really glad that I attended this event because I got the opportunity to meet a lot of people from other chapters and felt very confident in my leadership skills leaving this event.
This was my first time at the Fayetteville Animal Shelter, I went for dog walk training so that after this meeting I could do Hounds on the Town to walk the dogs around Fayetteville or at the shelter! During this meeting the volunteer coordinators talked to us about how to tell which dogs are going to be more or less trained on a leash and the process we need to go through when coming into the shelter to volunteer (telling the front desk what we are there for, signing in/out, getting a name tag, and where the leashes are). After training, I stayed and took a dog, Nala Jenny, out at the shelter and played fetch with her! She was a very sweet puppy and got adopted last week. :)
