Washington, DC Day 1

Today we went Unique rehabilitation center. Our group got to know some of the residents, watching their faces light up at our presence was so rewarding. Halfway through our service my group split into two. One group passed out trays consisting of the lunches, while my group helped organize rooms and closets. Today was sad because we saw some of the elderly residents immobile and unresponsive though i sensed that our presence brought joy and brightened their days. It was rewarding seeing the impact we had just by showing that younger people care for an elderly community.
