Today is Day of Caring and so I now consider my internship complete! Lucky for me I didn’t have class until 2 today so I got to go to the celebration lunch I organized. The lunch was at St. Vincent’s atrium (so nice of them!) and everything looked great. There were different types of wraps, cookies, chips, etc and we decorated the tables with apples and candy which was a nice finishing touch. But the best part about today for me was seeing all the volunteers. It was a great feeling to see them happy and it made me feel like all the work I did this summer was worth it. Today really couldn’t have gone any better. The weather today was PERFECT for Day of Caring and all the volunteers loved working outside. I am also proud to say that we beat last year’s record of number of volunteers and agencies who participated! We don’t have the exact count but there were over 100 projects and around 1,400 volunteers. Everyone can check out the United Way of Central Massachusetts website for more details about the event and to see tons of pictures from today!
P.s. I would like to say thank you to the rest of the United Way staff for being excellent helpers today and for giving me great guidance this summer. I couldn’t have done it without you!
