#NthDayofService

Yesterday Jalea T Moses and I spent the morning helping to clean up Mt. Hope Cemetary. It was humbling to give back and dedicate that time to beautifying the final resting places of other people's loved ones.

#NthDayofService

Yesterday, I volunteered at a local event that happens annually in Charleston. Shots with a Spin is a wheelchair basketball tournament that raises awareness and funds for organizations that aim to improve the quality of life for those with physical disabilities. Aside from the actual games, there were therapy dogs at the event and various organizations that taught about their adaptive experiences. I had an amazing time getting involved with this community and I also learned a lot, too. I even met a blogger, Alex, who suffered a spinal cord injury from a car accident when he was 9 months old. Although he is wheelchair bound, that doesn’t deter him from doing the things he loves, such as community events, wheelchair tennis, and blogging  It was a truly inspirational day.

#NthDayofService

I spent this #NthGivesBack morning at the Cleveland Food Bank with an awesome group of retired school teachers. We made macaroni 'n' cheese, chicken sandwiches, and packed a bunch of to-go lunches for the soup kitchens and local homeless shelters. This was my first time volunteering in a food bank and it was certainly a good experience. It may sound cliché, but it felt great doing something that would benefit so many people in need.
