Last week I worked at Catholic Charities again, helping the poor and homeless get food. If you ever get a chance to do this, I'd highly recommend it. It's more fun than you can shake a stick at*. I met a guy who had just gotten out of prison and was looking for a start on his new life. I also got to meet several Chinese people and had a great time working through our menu translation. Smiles and laughter all around.
It's definitely worth your time.
