This month, my main priority was getting the macro-sort process up and running. I started my first regular volunteer shift (1-3 on Thursdays) which has helped me make the macro-sort run as smoothly as possible and to ensure the volunteers are having an enjoyable and rewarding experience. Our back log of blue bag donations has been kept in check by my Thursday volunteer group which sorted 143 blue bags this month. Next month I will be taking on 5 more regular volunteer shifts to start reducing the significant donation back log. A new project from this month is the creation of a Global Links high school curriculum, which is still in the research phase. Some highlights of the month included volunteering at the Pittsburgh Park Conservancy’s Earth Day Extravaganza, attending our end of the school year Medical Supply Assistant party and tabling at Ten Thousand Villages Green Fair.
