Q. Can you tell us about your recent volunteer work with the missionaries?
A. We went to the Missionaries of Charity as a family on Christmas Eve to feed lunch to many homeless people. It was really fun helping a volunteer, named Rita, who works in the kitchen almost every day helping the Missionaries of Charity feed the homeless. It was also really fun to talk with the sisters who follow in Mother Teresa footsteps, serving the poor as a way of life.
