Volunteering At The Mens Shelter Was A Nice Experience
Volunteered 2 nights at the shelter, Thursday and Saturday, it went very well. Not a ton of things to do after midnight until 5 am or so, but it has it's moments. Didn't tell them I used to be a deputy sheriff, doesn't always go over as a good thing in all circles. Went out to my truck for something and the one guy complained that I was able to go out but everyone else had to wait until the designated smoke break time. When he found out I was a volunteer he laughed and said I looked more homeless than he did! It's both satisfying and sad that taking 4 2-liter bottles of soda can so brighten up the evening for 16 men.
