This was fun. I enjoyed helping the less fortunate and being able to do this with my young son was incredible. I also met many nice people along the way. I plan to do this every year.
I signed up to help with my family for Thanksgiving through their website. As the day approached, (and I hadn't received any information) I began trying to contact someone in the organization through Facebook messenger. I received a text telling me to keep checking the website for location information. We went with the kids to buy blankets, food, and toiletry kits. The 8 and 11 yr old were so excited to help! We even cancelled plans with friends that morning - but I was getting nervous about not hearing anything from them directly. I tried through Facebook messenger as well as their website. I was sent the link back to the website and nothing more. I should have cancelled and trusted my instinct at that point. I received a message after 11pm the night before Thanksgiving telling me they had too many volunteers and not to come. The kids were upset and didn't undestand. That's what really frustrated me the most. Volunteer coordination is hard, but this was a disaster.
What a great event. Thank you for the oopportunity
