I brought a co-worker with me this week. Her name is Sara. Sara emailed me a few weeks ago and mentioned she did an internet search and saw I was involved with the homeless. She was interested in volunteering. I set her up with a friend of mine from Mobile Loaves and Fishes then offered to have her come out with me. Sara accepted my invitation and joined me this past Saturday morning. She wrote me and reflected on her experience. "Thanks again for letting me come along and lend a hand during your Saturday run. It was an eye opening experience for me. I enjoyed it and will definitely try to go out on a Mobile Loaves and Fishes run. I was amazed at how well-informed some of your homeless friends were with news and such. Their knowledge about Austin history and current news was better than my own! I am sure they all have interesting and perhaps sad stories. I think your outreach is great and thanks for allowing me to share the experience. I might tag along on another Saturday sometime if you don’t mind. Thanks again!" Thanks to you Sara for you help on Saturday. My homeless friends love it when I bring people out to help out.
The next run is Friday morning, 7AM, are you there in the cyber world ready for it? Let me know, come tag along with me
