I volunteer at special friends. This program is dealing with kids at the St. Cloud Children’s Home. Every single week, there are about 20 kids from Cathedral that do this. It lasts about an hour and a half and starts in October and ends in May. What we do with our friends vary every week. It may consist of just having a conversation and see where it takes us. It may also consist of playing a sport in the gym. Whatever we are doing with our friends, you can tell how much they appreciate us coming there. They are so happy to see us and that makes me feel like I am making a difference in somebody's life.
I really enjoy doing special friends because there is no greater feeling than making someone’s day better. Everyone who does it really notices how much we are helping them. I also really like doing this because it makes me think and realize how blessed and thankful I am. All the kids at the Children’s Home have had rough lives and don’t have much of a family. I am truly blessed to be where I am at today.
