My name is David and I started volunteering after hearing about and seeing refugees on the streets and in the train stations. I volunteer with Serve the City on a project to provide breakfast at Park Maximillian several times per week. I also volunteer at the Rafael Center, the Haren Refugee Center and help coordinate a mobile library for the homeless. I find joy in serving others and interacting with them on a personal level especially the most vulnerable in our city. In the past I tried to find joy by taking care of my own needs and pursuing pleasure and entertainment. I have found true joy is achievable by taking my focus off myself and focusing on helping others.
