Tonight I had a Girl Scout meeting that I planned as part of a thing that my troop is doing where each of us plan meetings for the month. I decided to do something a little different and volunteer at a nursing home or something similar. I called a nursing and rehab center to see if there was anything that my troop could do for them and found out that they love trivia and just visiting with people in general, so I set up a time that a majority of the troop was able to come and prepared a list of trivia questions and general questions. It was a wonderful experience to get to talk to so many kind people at the nursing and rehab center and I think that they had fun learning new trivia facts. We were able to do a service to our community for almost no cost and all I had to do was make a phone call, inform the troop of the time and date, and prepare a little bit of questions, it was that easy! It made me think about how we were able to help them so easily and why people don’t do that kind of thing more often. Giving back to my community is very important to me, and I am so glad that I have so many wonderful opportunities to do this kind of thing with my troop. I want to encourage everyone to find a way that you can enjoy spreading kindness and even if it’s just once a month, try to do something that can benefit your community, it might give you something else to look forward to and enjoy. After tonight, I know that I will definitely want to try and volunteer in my community more often.
