I volunteer a couple days a month at a food pantry. I had to stop when the side effects of the leukemia medicine were so bad. But I've started again. I think I get more from volunteering than the people who come to get food. It feels so good volunteering. I like the connections I make with people. I like seeing their smiles and their gratitude for the pantry. I like hearing their stories. I like that some of the regulars give me hugs when they see me. I like the camaraderie with the other volunteers. I like that I'm helping people. It just feels good.
