RFMA Gives Back: 75F Experience

Posted By Kristen E. Johnson, 75F, Friday, October 14, 2016
It was a bright, sunny morning when we headed out to find The Daily Bread in downtown Orlando, Florida, where we would volunteer to help refresh a center that feeds the homeless and less fortunate. We were greeted by a large group of smiling faces alongside coffee and pastries. Thank you for the treats, Starbucks! We were given an emotional welcome speech from The Daily Bread community leaders. It was clear in both demeanor and words how overwhelmed the team was to see 160 eager faces, anxious to make improvements to the grounds and facilities. We quickly broke into groups that were in charge of landscaping, cleaning, organizing a clothes pantry, remodeling restrooms and painting. Each team was led by a designated task force leader who kept us energized and focused, while encouraging us to stay hydrated. The most grueling job was likely landscaping, as temps landed at over 90°F, with a heat index that was over 103°F! Around our lunch hour we took a much needed break to rehydrate and reenergize with a delicious meal. A special thanks to Olive Garden and KFC for donating the food. The incredible RFMA team provided a US map and everyone was encouraged to put on pin on their home. At the time we placed our orange pins on the Minneapolis area, we represented the most northern point on the map! It was truly rewarding to see so many individuals come together in pursuit of one common goal! With 160 hardworking people working as a team, we were reminded of what volunteering is all about. Thank you RFMA Gives for orchestrating such an impactful event. We loved being a part of it and we are proud of you for working to make a difference!
