On MLK day, Art Sphere Inc. hosted an event to share our free online lesson plan book and resources with the public and teach people about what we while they volunteered prepping after school program craft projects for children. We met in the large “Workshop” first floor events area where I helped arrange tables and chairs. We set up each table with different things to do, such as hot gluing, cutting, and folding, etc. By the time we were finished, we had over 70 people come to volunteer including children. During the event, I went around the room giving directions for each project, answering questions and explaining how it would be used in the classrooms. One example was cutting out hearts out of phone book pages for mixed media student collages. I went around and answered people’s questions and helping them out if they were confused about anything. Another thing I did was hand out cards for volunteers to write messages and decorate for veterans and senior citizens for Valentine’s Day. When the event was over, everyone helped out by cleaning up, breaking down tables and chairs, sweeping, and collecting projects.
This was my first time participating in MLK Day of Service and I was very excited to help out. Knowing that everyone was together talking to each other and having fun while putting together craft projects for children made me feel happy. Also writing cards for the senior citizens and veterans was very heartwarming. I feel happy knowing that the people that will receive their cards will feel loved and appreciated.
