Volunteering in Antibes

Facebook Twitter

Since I only have classes on Wednesday and Thursday, I have a lot of free time on my hands. Don't get me wrong. When life is super busy, I cherish free time. However, when I have too ~little~ to do, I get anxious.  

At UMass, a couple of my friends and I volunteer at a soup kitchen every Friday afternoon. Spending time there helping and hanging out is a great way to give back to the greater Amherst community.  

Same goes for any soup kitchen, anywhere. So I figured I finding one near me would be a perfect way to fill up some of my free time.

Although my French isn't the best, I think it's enough to get me by here in France. Le Resto du Coeur is a local soup kitchen that serves almost everyone in need over the course of the week. Another girl in my program already volunteers here, so I’ll even have a buddy to go with. 

Updates to come, but I am super excited to get involved with my community.

Antibes Post: Sushi Shop

When I started blogging from abroad, my intention was to keep my posts general enough that all future-abroaders could find them somewhat useful. I’ve realized, though, that many of my posts are specific to Antibes, so ... if you’re planning on studying in the French Riviera through CEA, enjoy!
