A Great Experience
During the last week of June, I had the opportunity to be a volunteer at work camp. I was a part of the group from Onondaga Presbyterian Church. This year work camp picked Syracuse, NY as the location they would work to help people who don't have the money they need to do repairs on their homes. We were divided into groups of 5 or 6 volunteers and assigned locations for the week.
The location I was at for the week was the American Legion in Camillus. Our task for the week was scraping and painting the exterior of the building.
We spent the week (in residence) at West Genesee High School. We had devotional time in the mornings and at night. The person at the Legion we met was a Vietnam veteran named Marion. He offered to make us lunch as we worked, and told us stuff from his life in the military. On our final night at work camp, Marion came to our evening devotions.
I'm looking forward to volunteering again next year.
