On June 25, 2016, Quan, Savannah, Y, Jullianne, and I donated clothes and volunteered at Sacred Heart Community Service in San Jose. This charity provides resources and services to poor working families such as clothes, food, parenting classes, and preschool education.

Prior to the volunteer date, we gathered clothes from our families and friends. We sorted them out in different categories so that it would be easier for the closet to organize. Before our shift started, we brought them to the Sacred Heart Clothes Closet. Thanks to all of our friends and family, we were able to donate 9 garbage bags full of clothes!

Quan, Savannah, Y, Jullianne, and I were placed in the food pantry along with the alumni of Notre Dame to sort out food bags to the families that qualified to get them. These bags are distributed once every two weeks and have a large variety of food to help them get through the month. Quan, Savannah, and Jullianne formed an assembly line with the other ladies to put different food items such as pasta, tomato sauce, tuna, and canned fruit into bags and onto the truck. Y lifted all of the heavy boxes and unloaded the canned food to keep the ladies working efficiently in the bagging line. I broke down all of the cardboard boxes from the canned foods and brought them to the recycling bin. Together, we were able to make 800 bags of food for families!

Our court would like to thank Sacred Heart Community Service for giving us the opportunity to give back to the community by allowing us to donate clothes and provide bags of food to those in need. We enjoyed volunteering for this organization and look forward to coming back! For more information, please visit their website at: http://sacredheartcs.org
