It was my first time helping at a community kitchen. It was a great experience and I plan to help again soon.
it was very fun and easy to help serve lunch.
I was able to choose what path I wanted to volunteer in and help mostly by imputing administrative information onto a software.
I registered/checked in runners for the Turkey Trot and assigned them a bib number. The coordinator provided us with shirts and free food which was nice!
We checked in guests to pick up their packets for the Turkey Trot on November 27.
We helped racers get their bibs
It felt nice to help an event that benefits those most in need. The volunteer duties were not difficult at all and we were all treated amicably.
It was very exciting to see volunteers of all ages coming together to orchestrate such a large event for the citizens of Austin. While assisting participants with the pre-race prep, it was easy to see how much of an impact myself and the other volunteers were making. By being professional, respectful, and responsible on the job, we were able to make the packet pick-up/registration process smooth and easy for many people in our community, allowing them to relax and enjoy themselves on the day of the event. This event has been a part of the city for many years because of the hard work of countless volunteers. I'm honored to have been a part of the tradition. It's amazing what a team of dedicated volunteers with a common goal can accomplish!
