Move for hunger
"We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works with relocation companies to collect non-perishable food items and deliver it to food banks all across North America."
- I took this internship to gain experience working for client(s) and to get a feel for the real world. But most importantly I took it to give back! Move for Hunger is a great cause that had no steady stream of video content. This experience was one I will never forget, and makes me feel confident about doing social good.
- Spring internship creating motion & video content. Tasks included creating content, audio/video production, video editing, animation, motion graphics, social media gifs, and a few print pieces as needed.
United Presbyterian Church of West Orange gives me an opportunity to donate my time and talents in ending hunger, helping those in need, and raising awareness.
- Musical & Video Talent Donations
- Yearly Food Drive
- Yearly Blood Drive Donor & Volunteer
- IHN (Interfaith Hospitality Network) Volunteer
- Youth Motivation & Consultation Volunteer
This was a self motivated movement that included cleaning up:
- Eagle Rock Reservation, NJ (learn more)
- South Mountain Reservation, NJ (learn more)
- Norvin Green State Forest, NJ (learn more)
- Asbury Park Beach & Boardwalk(s), NJ (learn more)
- Saratoga Springs Forest, NY (learn more)
- Cape Cod National Seashore, MA (learn more)
Each location required different levels of attention. Some required a team of people to make a small dent, while others were one day, myself, and a bag, trying to make the biggest difference I could with the time I had.
Local animal Shelter
Just doing the dirty work of cleaning kennels, feeding animals, and washing what needed to be washed. I have always had companion for animals that don't have a home and are at risk of being put down. If I can give some time to do dirty work to make their lives better, I feel I've done something great.
"Animals can't complain so they always roll with the punches, not that they would even if they could. They have to much love to give." -Mary Dickson
