Week 14

So this past week at St. Anne's was pretty pretty slow. There wasn't anything really going on so at the beginning of my shift they basically just had me do some really odd jobs arounds the place. After awhile they had me create a message board so that when residents take down messages for other residents, they have a place to write them down and nothing gets lost through word of mouth. It was a pretty uneventful task. First I took down the old construction paper! Woo! Then I put up some new construction paper that was lots of pretty colors. After that I stapled little pieces of white paper to the 16 squares (representing the 16 different rooms) so that when the residents see they have messages, they can just rip off the piece of paper and take their message with them. After I finished that my 2 hours was pretty much up so they just left me leave. And that was the end of my day! I don't really have anything to say because we haven't really been doing anything in class so I'm not really sure how I'm going to fill up my word count requirement for the day. So I guess this is it guys....

Oh and ps. next week is our last week!!!

Week 13

So, this entry is a little late but hey, better late than never right?? Ok, so two weeks ago on Saturday I was at St. Anne's volunteering like I do every week. This week they had my organizing the kid's clothes closet. This is a room that is in the basement that is filled with all sorts of donated clothes. There are winter coats, dress coats, pants, shorts, leggings, short-sleeve shirts, long-sleeve shirts, sweatshirts, shoes, boots, slippers and so many more things. Most of the clothes in there were already put in their proper places. The only clothes I had to sort were two bags of donated ones, a box of baby shorts, and then take down all the winter coats and hang up the summer/fall ones. After that was finished one of my volunteer boss man people asked me to sort through all the shoes and boots. I had to make sure that all the shoes had matches. Then, I organized them based upon their "newness." (New shoes go in seperate bins than the used ones. NEXT, i put them on shelves based on what size they looked like. The one thing that really bummed me out was that a lot of the different types of shoes didn't have matches. There were so many nice boots and brand new shoes that were missing a pair! Sooooo, since the didn't have a match I had to just through them out back in the dumpster because there wasn't anything else we could do. After that I ate dinner and went back to my dorm room to rest. It was another eventful day at St. Anne's Place!!
