2012 DOOR- Denver Mission Trip Tuesday
Today we helped weed tomato, broccoli, and onion plants at the De Laney Community Farm. This organization is a non-profit; community garden where community members may form low-income households can buy shares of the crop while volunteering on the farm as well. It was really fun to help out with this cause (despite the 100 degree weather) and we appreciated that the workers welcomed us and helped us with the tasks.
Today was day 2 of DOOR mission work. Our group worked at a homeless shelter called Father Woody’s House of Hope. They provide clothes, shoes, and hot showers to the people of and around Denver. We sorted through donated clothes, cooked food and then served food to people. It was a great experience and we learned how to serve others and show respect. We look forward to tomorrow’s adventures with DOOR
Today we went to ARC warehouse. They had us pack boxes full of cans and packaged goods ( we were repackaging items from a food drive for Volunteers of America to sort and distribute to agencies in Denver) Next we went across the parking lot of doom. We went into a freezing cold warehouse and threw books aka melons into bins ( we sorted the books so that they could be resold to dealers or recycled). After that we went across the sketchy parking lot in the scorching heat to the food warehouse. We packed even more food and that is when the torture began. The boxes started cutting us and jelly started squirting everywhere. Finally one o’clock came around and we were allowed to leave. We made a trip to the ARC Thrift Store and paid a visit to Dairy Queen YUM.
