Service, Georgetown, Lobby Prep!
Posted on 07/21/2014 @ 10:00 PM
Another early morning here at Impact DC. Some of us headed to the Wider Circle to organize toys, fold clothing, repair furniture, move items, and help clients load their vehicles with furniture. We were lucky enough to see the clients who we have been helping today as they came to select their much-needed items. The other half of us worked to better the Hillel here at University of Maryland by planting flowers and painting pots. It was so rewarding to contribute to the community we have become a part of together.
This afternoon, we traveled to Georgetown to explore the wonderful college town. Many of us indulged in local food such as burgers and cupcakes. It was a really fun day!
We headed back to Hillel to continue our last push of advocacy preparation before we lobby to our congressmen and congresswomen tomorrow. Everyone has been working very diligently to lobby for issues that mean so much to us. Impact has given us the skills and opportunity to showcase our abilities and advocate for our beliefs in a way we have never experienced. We are looking forward to tomorrow's meetings!
