                        During Christmas 2005, the
                        Freshman Year Experience class
                        got together and brought in
                        wrapped toys. We donated the
                        toys to children who
                        unfortunately, were not able to
                        have a Christmas like many
other children. It is kind of similar to “Toys For Tots,”
which is a nationwide project that is done annually.
Both projects have brought the joy of Christmas to
needy children and family every year.

Second Harvest Food Bank “Car Wash”




A couple of students from my Freshman Year Experience class got
together and had a car wash at the Red Lobster on St.Augustine
Road, near Valdosta Colonial Mall. Even though there were only
about eight people there, it was actually a lot of fun. We decided to
donate all of the money to the Second Harvest Food Bank!

                                           suppose to be the BIG
                                           day, but “Mother
                                           Nature” decided to take
                                           over. We were suppose
                                           to have our 2nd Car
                                           Wash at Steak-n-
                                           Shake. The money was
                                           suppose to be donated
                                           to the Humane Society
of Valdosta. We tried AGAIN on Sunday, but things still
didn’t work out as planned! I feel kind of bad… I really wanted to
help the animals! Better LUCK next time huh?

                        “Field Day”
On April 28, 2006, me and a
couple of my classmates decided to
go help out at S.L.Mason
Elementary school for their “Field
Day.” The event was held at
Valdosta Middle School from 9am
until 1pm. All of us went to
separate stations to help out. I
helped at station 5 which was
called “Texas.” The kids played a
game called the “Lone Star
Toss,” which consisted of tossing
rings onto any of the 5 cones that
happened to be in the shape of a star. They were divided into three lines, and had
to compete to see which team would get the most rings on the cones in 3 minutes.
At first they seemed to be a little frustrated, but after a while they got the hang of
it.
After participating in various Community Service
projects, I concluded things aren’t as hard as they
seem. A lot of people choose not to do community
service because it seems so time consuming, but
after you get into it, it is not as bad as it seems. I
actually think I enjoyed participating in these
community service projects. You meet so many new
people and you get to socialize with many people
who you probably would have never spoken with.
