A Saturday To Give Back (8/11/12)

10 am on a Saturday morning, if I am not running errands I am might be in my pajamas. However, it was no ordinary Saturday, it was a day of giving back. An organization called MPACCT DMV hosted an event called “Feed The Homeless”, we all gathered at Masjid Muhammad located at 1519 4th St NW Washington, DC at around 10 am. All praise due to God, there were many volunteers, and as time went on more showed up. We made 200 lunches, which included turkey sandwiches, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, juice, a granola bar, apple sauce, and chips. Everyone came together and worked as a team, if there were too many people at one station, then someone would go and see what else needed to be done. It was great to see  people young and old working together for such a great cause. Once the lunches were prepared the organizers coordinated caravan / carpool,  and we all drove down to one of the parks in DC. As soon as we got out of the car, the homeless people were ready for us. In addition to lunches, we also passed out toiletries. Thank you MPACCT DMV and all of the volunteers for making a difference in the community!!!!
