Last month, I volunteered to distribute food in my local area with other volunteers. We set out to help those who were struggling because of the Covid-19 pandemic. A number of people in our surrounding area lost their jobs as a result of the lockdown and they were in need of food and other essential items. 

The other workers and I met at our local community hall in the morning and prepared care packages with rice, produce and clothing. We also prepared care packages for households with babies. We each went around the neighborhood and gave them to those in need. 

I participated in this because I felt so bad for those who are affected by the pandemic. Moreover, I had some free time so I wanted to help. It took me 4 hours everyday, which was a little bit tiring, but I felt great. It is so fulfilling to help others and see how happy you can make a person feel too. I would without a doubt do it again and get involved in more volunteer work in the future.
