The Friendship Shelter

I am currently spending 1-2 nights a month cooking dinner and serving food at the Friendship Shelter in Laguna Beach, Ca. The shelter provides meals to 30-40 spirited individuals trying to make a difference in their own lives, many homeless or in transition. This has been an awesome experience being able to do so little but make such a big difference in someones life by giving then a home cooked meal.

Objective

I would like to earn a position in advertising or marketing that will provide me with the opportunity to grow and develop new skills, while contributing to an industry that I am passionate about.
