Behind the scenes of Friendship Circle

Categories: Friendship Circle

I volunteer at Friendship Circle on Mondays and Thursdays.  When I go there, I’m a receptionist, which means I answer the phone and help other people sign in.  I also help out with small tasks like restocking the fridges, cleaning and helping out with events. What I like most about my job is helping everyone when they need me.  The best part about Friendship Circle is that I get to see some of my friends. Next time you come in on a Monday or a Thursday, come say “hi”. I’m usually down at the front desk.
