We cleaned up after we served dinner. I did the dishes while the church service was going on, and others cleaned floors. After service was over we served desert, cleaned up the event area.

Took me a while to get in, but I was early. Staff immediately had something for me to do and I was busy the whole time which was nice. I washed dishes, helped clear and tidy up a hallway, and served food.

We moved items from the bear pantry, and a storage location at the library into the new location for the bear pantry. We also organized some of the items into cabinets. The coordinators were prepared and had something for us to do the whole time.

We handed out a meal, made ginger bread houses with kids, and then played in the gym upstairs with the kids. Great experience and environment, and program leaders were super helpful and prepared.

Volunteering at the Thursday night dinners at Fairbanks is such a unique experience. Never have I volunteered somewhere that the staff were so welcoming, that the other volunteers after one night became new friends, that every ounce of work was met with smiles and enthusiasm from all. I may arrive feeling tired and stressed, but I leave feeling fulfilled, happy, grateful. I cannot explain how much this place has come to mean to me.
