» During the summer I went to Califronia to go visit and help out the Dream Center for church. When we got there we went knocking door to door praying and saying "how can we help you or serve so we can make a differnece in your life.". It was mainly for the homeless.The Dream Center is where people need help in their lives and dont have a home to stay. When I went to the Dream Center I helped out alot with everything.What I did is that I gave food to the homeless I prayed for them and I gave them fliers for their families so they can go visit the Dream Center and also so that they can visit the wonderful church they have. I reccomand you going there because it made a big difference in my life.That was the best volunteering I could of ever done.
