with me in knowing that finding summer work as a student is not always an easy thing to do. So after unsuccessfully finding consistent employment for the summer, the question was what am I going to do with my free time? Growing up attending a Mennonite church in the area, I was very familiar with Mennonite Central Committee and the work they do for relief, development and peace in the name of Christ. So naturally, volunteering at a local MCC thrift store seemed like an obvious opportunity to give back to the community while staying busy and getting experience in a great workplace setting. So please join me this summer to learn more about what volunteering at Kent is all about and remember to keep calm and thrift on.
