Since June of 2009 I have volunteered with the Savannah branch of Senior Citizens Inc., where I delivered Meals-on-Wheels to the elderly and disabled. Every summer, three days of every week ( with the exception being holidays) ,I have spent approximately an hour counting the meals, sorting the hot trays from the frozen ones, and delivering them to their respective recipients. I completed this community service in two assisted living apartments: Williams Court Apartments and Stillwell Towers. Williams Court possessed recipients over the span of eight floors and Stillwell had recipients over eighteen floors. Each summer I completed a minimum of thirty hours doing my community service.
