One of the locations where H2O volunteers is Micah 6, a food pantry near UT campus (behind the Church of Scientology on 22nd St.) It is open every Thursday evening and Saturday morning to those who are in need. Micah 6 is a wonderful non-profit, and always runs smoothly thanks to the efforts of volunteers and with the help of kind staff. H2O volunteers with Micah 6 at least once a month, and we always have a great time!
One of the things that we do as a way to debrief after every volunteer event, is to talk about what we learned. One of our volunteers had this to say:
“I learned that everybody needs a little help. Some people couldn’t get Stove Top because they don’t have a kitchen, while other people had cell phones, so it was very different from one person to the next.” -Jackie
