As I walked in through the secured doors of the building, I was amazed by how beautifully decorated the place was. There was beautiful art work, fireplaces, and elegant furniture. As we kept moving forward in the tour I realized that the Lodge was a lot more luxurious than any other place I have volunteered at. I started to ask myself whether the people that stay at the Hope Lodge really need all these luxuries. A lot of money has been donated to the Hope Lodge and I guess I wondered if they used the money wisely. I also volunteer at People Serving People and the difference in the buildings, decorations, and commodities is immense.
