Community Service Knows No Borders: The Benefits of Volunteering Abroad

I was afforded the opportunity to start my volunteering at St. James Church in Florence, Italy, on September 21, through the Community Outreach Program at Florence University of the Arts. My volunteering happens from 9-11 a.m. every Thursday morning at the church’s food bank. For the first hour we mingle with the other volunteers, have cappuccinos and croissants and prepare for the city’s citizens
