Today we went to the Rescue Mission and got to explore Tacoma. At the rescue mission we helped make lunch, and prepped for dinner and the next day’s breakfast. This included chopping a lot of onions, Cayley making 100 grilled cheeses, and Cayley and Charlie serving lunch to around 40 people that live and work at the Rescue Mission. This was extremely different from the rest of the week in which we did a lot of construction work.
After we volunteered and ate lunch we went to Point Defiance Park and explored. First we went to The Living History Museum which is a model of Fort Nisqually. This was very cool! We then went to Owen’s Beach which was awesome because we got a beautiful view of the Sound, and saw our fair share of dogs. This was quite relaxing in comparison to the rest of the week and gave us a very different perspective of Tacoma.
After this we went to a local restaurant and had a cool send off party that Habitat threw for us. It was awesome to see how thankful Habitat was for our service throughout this immersion.
