Gabby’s Day at AFYA

This year for service day, I visited AFYA, and organization that donates medical supplies to countries that are economically struggling. Because of their lack of government revenue, these countries are unable to supply themselves with the proper supplies which countries like the United States and Britain have access to. While at the organization, I sorted medical supplies by its type (bandages in one bag, syringes in another, etc) to be shipped of to hospitals and homes in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Gabby Rachman’s Service Reflection

This year, I volunteered at Gallop NYC, which is a non-profit organization in which children with special needs receive therapeutic horseback riding. The horses can be used for physical therapy if someone has a physical disability, or they are used to help children learn how to ride the horse (steering, trotting, etc.) I have worked with multiple children on the Autism Spectrum, those with ADHD and those with CP (Cerebral Palsy). This is my second year working at this organization, and I have had a positive experience this year.
