Today is yet another alike service at Low Country Food Bank. We help organize everyday-necessary stuffs such as shampoo, medicine, etc . I learn how to do team work.
The manager at the place said that the work is easy, all we have to do is moving disorganized stuff to empty boxes. Morgan had an idea of marking the category onto each empty box so that we can sort them easily. We would then divide into two team, each team on either side of the table , in which one team[ that is near the disorganized box, that I was in] hands stuff to the other team[ that do sorting]. Basically, in the handing-team, two person works on one boxes. Everything works fluently until we had done organizing which is the time to get lunch. We go to lunch.
After getting back from lunch, we jumped into boxing. This time we were meticulous about stuff’s expiration date comparing to before-lunch time we which just throw stuffs into empty boxes. The manager wanted us to keep all the 2012, which I think is not appropriate. What if the expiration date is on January, February, etc of 2012(the time of this writing is March-14-2012)? Do you want to send already expired stuff to poor people? Is it helping or making things worst? We ended up doing what he asked for!!!Anyway, I think they will do the second check before giving these stuffs to needed people, so it would be fine. We finished work fast. Yet, without cooperation of everyone, the work has taken longer time.
After having done all the work, we took picture again, and went back to the motel. We went to mall the rest of the day eating and shopping. Everyone had have a good time I figure.
