With Lambda Psi Rho, I volunteered at Relay for Life. I helped walk around the track for awareness, participated in the various events held, and spent time with victims of anyone who has been, or is still being affected by cancer. It was a good experience that taught us that even if we personally don't know anyone affected by cancer, it is still has a large affect in the community and we should continually find ways to fight and find cures for cancer.
Due to conflict of schedules, Comahig, Magalued and I had to do community service at different times this week. On April 5, 2017, I volunteered with Urban Roots from 12:30-2:30 P.M. I mostly pulled weeds and helped get the last of the cages off the rocks. Now all the rocks are placed without cages. I worked with Dave who does most of the work in Urban Roots.
On March 14, 2017, Comahig and I went to Urban Roots for community service. We were given the choice between continuing the project we started the last time we were there or to pull weeds. We initially chose to continue our last project where we cut open metal cages, removed the rocks from inside, and put the rocks back into the holes they were originally in. After an hour of working on it, we decided to pull weeds and use that to feed the chickens found near the entrance of Urban Roots. We participated in community service from 10:15 A.M. to 12:15 P.M.
Although it was hard work, it was good to know that we were cleaning up for educational camps which Urban Roots offers throughout the year.
On Saturday February 25, 2017, my Pledge Line and I went to Urban Roots for community service. We had the task of removing rocks of various sizes from large metal nets buried in the ground and filling the resulting holes with the rocks that we dug out. Comaghig, Magalued, and I took turns cutting the metal nets, pulling the nets out of the ground and picking up rocks. Brother Gabe Delos-Santos also attended and helped us with a lot of the work. The experience was challenging yet rewarding knowing that we are cleaning up the area in order for Urban Roots to hold camps for kids in order to teach them about agriculture and farming.
