Chips workday

On our last day of work with YSOP, my group went to chips in Brooklyn. Chips is a shelter and kitchen bit also gives out food to make meals like a pantry. We helped to prepare bags for take home meals and prepared for lunch. When the people got there,a split up into our separate jobs serving, cleaning, greeting, and such. The people were regulars so they talked with the volunteers and were so thankful. This kitchen was also very laid back. They have seconds and if people had containers they could have food to take for later. We even had cake for sometimes birthday! They played music and many people were dancing and singing. It was such a great atmosphere to be in. I wish there were more volunteer opportunities at places like chips!
