Volunteering with Dignity on Wheels – Throw Back Thursday 

A year ago I had more free time, and was not pumping or breastfeeding every three hours, so I was able to volunteer with and at my church. An On This Day App reminded me that a little over a year ago I was volunteering with to help with the shower service, Dignity on Wheels, which was at our church several days a week. The program is a mobile shower and laundry provider that allows members of the homeless population to take a hot shower with provided materials and to do a small load of laundry. I was proud to wear my feminist shirt, referencing Senator Elizabeth Warren and pink shoes to make a statement.

As a volunteer, we helped register men and women who wanted to use the services, along with giving them a free bagged lunch and a list of community services.

This sign helped people find the church and services from the road.

The church also held the Warming Center where a group of homeless women were provided with food, shelter and activities by volunteers.

This year our church will not be a Dignity on Wheels site, but that may change in future years. I’m glad I had the chance to volunteer last year, and look forward to volunteering again in future years when William is older.
