Why I volunteered here: The Food Bank is an essential part of this community which provides for those in need. The importance of this institution in those peoples' lives is paramount, and I wanted to be a part of this positive and generous organization.
Why I volunteered here: I've always had a passion for martial arts, and I decided that I should give back to the organization that has helped me so much. As a small child, I appreciated the lessons and coachings of volunteers in the dojo, and I saw their benefits.
Impact: 2 Hours Volunteered = 1 person with a disability the opportunity to experience nature
