As I walk through the doors of this strange Fred Myers I wonder how I'm going to find them I'd never come to this FM before and did I even go to the right one? Oh well, ask and you shall find or something like that. So I walk up to the first Fred Myers employee I see and ask if he knows where the Hands on Portland people are, but he doesn't know what the Hands on Portland is. Great. But then he asks if its some sort of volunteer thing, I say yes and he points me in a direction telling me to ask for Patty. So far so good so I go and ask for Patty only to find out that she wasn't the one in charge, but it was Laney. So after a little confusion I find Laney who helps me get started by taking pictures and stuff. I also get a mini explanation of what this project is all about. Turns out I should have said Store to Door at the front instead. For this is what that actually was and Store to Door is only one of may programs that Hands on Portland gives volunteers for.After strolling around through the halls checking out what people are doing, and also discovering Mint Flavored Apple Jelly, I decide to try my hand at this, so Laney hooks me up with a Volunteer Mentor who wonderfully gives me a tour of the store and goes along with me to do my first shopping order. It was fun to see what kinds of things people like, but shopping for others is so difficult, (That statement was reiterated many a time, by several different people.) after that's done, I notice the time and now have to hurry to get another couple interviews. After conversing with a few volunteers I notice I haven't gotten pictures of where the food goes after the check stand. Taking up my camera I ask to follow someone who is loading her car, though she is a little camera shy she relents and then after a couple quick shots its back inside for a little while for a couple interviews and then I really have to be on my way, I'm already late for class! That was my somewhat rushed, but still definitely interesting experience with Hands on Portland at Store to Door.
