San_Antonio H&P Day 4

Today was our first day volunteering for The Children's Shelter of San Antonio. We all split into separate groups and worked with different age groups of children. In the morning, the guys played with some of the younger boys and the girls were split between working with infants, and toddlers and older children. For lunch we all went to the cafeteria for a Thanksgiving lunch with the children. After lunch, we all went out to the playground area to play with the toddlers. Toward the end of our day at The Children's Shelter, one of the employees gave us a very in-depth description of how the shelter operates and some of the background stories of the children. This gave us a much greater understanding of the impact this place was having on the kids how it worked to get them the bright future each and every one of them deserve. After wrapping up our time at The Children's Shelter, we went on to serve Thanksgiving dinner at St. Vincent's Bistro, a partner of Haven for Hope. While in the back of our minds we may have had thoughts of our usual family traditions at this time of the year, we all felt humbled to serve the community during time of thanks.
