~ BE THE CHANGE ~
A few years ago… I had the privilege and honor to volunteer with Francina Price and CMF/DOE on a Saturday morning at the Senior Connections in Dekalb. I would assist in the kitchen packing meals for senior citizens needing meals each day. So, off I went on Saturday morning to help! I was surprised at the end result for me that day. My expectation was to give of my time and service with the Ladies of this great organization, instead I was the one who received!
The CMF/DOE is a group of awesome Ladies who give of their time to Champions Medal Foundation assisting in various services throughout the Metro Atlanta Area. They are fun, engaging, entertaining, caring, committed and generous! My time that Saturday morning was filled with joy and laughter at the Center. I made new friends, learned about the Dekalb Senior Center and their wonderful services for the seniors. The Ladies of CMF/DOE continues to support and service many areas of Metro Atlanta. I am proud to know these ladies and to be able to participate with them throughout the years!
I would like to say that all of my experiences with the CMF community service activities have been great. So great that we made it a tradition to serve approximately 3 to 4 times per year. We, the family of CMF, come together to flourish our community. We also put kindness in our hearts, by doing good deeds for others. This makes us feel good on the inside. We love to hear that we accomplished something for the greater good of someone else. Under the leadership of my aunt Francina Price, we come together as a team for a common goal to share loving kindness and joy. It makes the job easier. We are not always able to see each other on daily bases, so these times are the best because we are family.
I have served at nursing homes, food banks, community gardens, just to name a few. One key thing I have learned is to have good listening skills as we do things to help the world become a better place. Our patience has grown, and our mouths are filled with glee. As a volunteer of CMF, I love everything we do because we are united into one. All of us following our one and best path, God's path.
