The beauty of community service is seeing how many walks of life can be gathered up in a simple act of kindness. Confirmation I class makes cat toys for homeless kittens. Who gets helped? The cats obviously, but also the youth in the act of giving and in the learning/practice of sewing.
Also the Girl Scouts who pitched in making toys; learning how to sew and in knowing they are part of an even bigger effort..
Add my client. In her youth an expert seamstress. We spent a quiet morning remembering how to sew, and discussing homeless cats.
