Alternative Winter Break 2016 Post How Others Live – Jessica Meyers

By Year Round Programs

Jessica (far r) and some new friends

Today was very eye-opening. It made me actually think hard about how others live and how good I have it.

Today we went to help out at the Alexandra House and I was in charge of helping organize the thrift sale. I also had a great time with the kids! They were so happy and I don’t think they had any idea of why they were there and not in a nice home with their whole family. We then got a tour at PATH and it was very interesting! I think my favorite day was today because I felt like we did the most work to help the society!

I’m not a part of TY camp but this trip might make me sign up because I had a great time with all of the people! Thanks for making my winter break great and I will hopefully see everyone over the summer!
