I volunteered for Meals on Wheels and Sterling Rides. I did have a selfish motive: to find my way around Savannah. As I used my gps and the wealth of knowledge of my clients, I got off the main roads and finally gained an understanding of the streets in this beautiful city.
Each of us do not live in a bubble, we are dependent on each other in large and small ways. I felt privileged to be a small part of seeing that someone had a meal for the day or that they were able to get medical attention. It is wonderful to have friends and family around, but that isn't always enough. What a blessing to be able to help others, what a joy to meet delightful people who have lived full and interesting lives.
