I painted and wrote over 100 postcards to the "Dear New York" effort during Covid (merely to brighten someone's day with their food care package.) The effort was easy on my part and meaningful. I hope it was well-received by the recipient!

I liked because it felt I was doing something for the community and those who are under privileged.

The event was for a great cause and the people were very friendly.

Everyone there was so nice and thoughtful. They was very clear on what they wanted all the volunteers to do. I had a great experience volunteering with them, I would recommend anyone who likes to do setup and just help in anyway possible will do fine. The only bad thing , well not really bad, was they didnt give volunteers a t-shirt. Would have been nice to have a momento of my experience.
