During my time at the Hazardous Waste Mobile Collection Event, I was able to help direct traffic into the drop-off site. While most of what I did was just traffic control, I appreciated being able to interact with all the people who were committed to dropping off their household hazardous waste. It was a great day, and being able to work with the other really fun volunteers was amazing!

While at Seacrest Field, I was able to help direct recycling and pick up litter. There is unfortunately a lot of litter generated at the football games, but I felt that I was able to partially offset that by volunteering.
This was a great experience, and I'd highly recommend anyone who's interested in seeing behind the scenes of waste generation to volunteer here!
During the Walk to End Epilepsy, I was able to interact with individuals and families checking in to the event. While I mainly sat at the registration table, I was also able to listen to others share their personal stories about epilepsy, which was very impactful. I greatly appreciated this opportunity.
