It was a unique experience to volunteer at Salvation Army Belkin House, whose mission is to “break the cycle of homelessness”. We were excited to see a line of people waiting outside the cafe to be served snacks (even the chef said most residents might have gone outside for some sun).
I noticed that some people were quite hesitant. Their eyes and tones made me wonder about their stories behind. I hope the smiles on our faces and our cheerfulness could bring them some “light and love”.
It was a great reward hearing their “thank you” before they left the cafe. I hope we can serve the residents again in the near future.
