A group of us walk dogs every week at our local Humane Society. It's a fun thing to do and the dogs always express their appreciation!
But it can be grueling in the hot humid summer here. It's not quite summer here yet but we have had some hot days ... and many of us wish we had some cool refreshing water to quench our thirst in the heat.
But this is something that I can change - I decided that I will be the water point person and try to keep my team cool so that they can stay committed. So I've brought a cooler with water bottles for the last two weeks and intend to do that the entire summer. It's a small and easy thing to do.
Last week everyone had some water and I think it helped us all physically and mentally! Just look around - it's these little things that count! :=D
Please consider this: use reusable water bottles (many can be found for $3 at drugstores, or ask each volunteer to hand you her/his bottle.
Hope the doggies have a few bowls, too!
I also volunteer at my local HS and it is the most rewarding thing I have ever done
My recognition is a wagging tail or big sloppy kiss
I know everyone appreciates your kind gesture
