This was my first week volunteering for Volunteer Square and Person to Person definitely proved to be a wonderful transition. Person to Person is an organization located in Darien whose purpose is to provide clothing and food for those misplaced or in need. By volunteering here, I was able to experience first hand all of the thought and the process that goes behind making the community a better place. I hung clothes, helped individuals with bags they were planning on donating, and also helped those who needed the clothing. There are so many different aspects that go into an organization such as Person to Person that I was thankful enough to have been opened up to. For example, I was able to work on my team building skills and especially my communication skills. Thanks to this first week at Volunteer Square, I was able to experience what it means to be a helpful citizen.
