    2021 MLK Day Service
    2021 MLK Day Service

    I was the project leader, and I was delighted that 5 people signed up -- 4 actually were able to serve with me. We sorted donated clothing in the warehouse for 3 hours, and for the last hour we did some cleaning in the store. The gentleman in the warehouse who oriented us to our task (Sharn) was very patient with us, very accommodating. It was a joy to work for him, and he seemed to enjoy being with us. He told us he had lost his leg (didn't say how), but that he was happy to find work at the store. The people who work there are very dedicated -- they want to make sure the items they offer are in good shape and professionally displayed so that the folks who shop there (most often of lesser means) can have a pleasant shopping experience and a sense of dignity. Treating everyone with dignity is what the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store is all about, and I was happy to be part of that for a few hours.

    Gave 4.00 hours on 01/17/2021 with University of Saint Francis, THE FRANCISCAN TRADITION (105) - Section 04
