There are over 578,000 Americans experiencing homelessness on any given night in the United States. Many of these Americans live in areas affected by natural disasters such as floods and hurricanes. Volunteers will learn about Gulf Coast relief efforts and help make a difference in the lives of those affected by homelessness.
Participants will serve with various non-profit agencies and tasks may include serving meals at homeless shelters, sorting and organizing donations, and basic facilities maintenance.
The best part of the trip was that instead of working with just one organization, we worked with different organizations every day like Emmanuel Baptist Church, Boys and Girls Club, Humane Society, etc...“Giving back to society” was just a phrase for me until ASB made me realize the true meaning of that.
