Giving Thanks

On Friday evening I volunteered at Metropolitan Ministries with the women's group I'm in, High Hopes in High Heels. We were stationed in the food tent helping those in need "shop" for their Thanksgiving. The tent has these aisles with all different canned goods and boxed food placed on shelves. Those who came in had a list of items they were able to choose from. And we were there to assist them through the aisles and to restock the shelves.

It was a very humbling experience. No matter how much I complain about being broke or not having money to do this or that, I can't imagine what it must be like to not be able to afford to give your family a proper Thanksgiving dinner. Metropolitan Ministries does a lot of good things for our community and I was proud to help them out even if it was for only a couple of hours. The experience was heartbreaking at times, but I also enjoyed myself. Everyone was very nice and thankful for the help they were receiving. I would definitely like to go back for Christmas

If you'd like to help, you can for just $10. Text the word WINGS to 20222 to donate $10 and be someone's angel this Thanksgiving.
