Hello, my name is Taylor Hammack and I will be going on the Gainesville, Florida Alternative Winter Break. I decided to go on this trip because I’ve wanted to volunteer more and have the experience of an alternative break. Growing up my family was part of a collie rescue in Ohio and I have always loved helping animals. I understand how important it is to volunteer. I feel like this certain trip will show me the full alternative volunteer break experience. I am keeping my mind open to seeing how the site operates and I’m hoping to help as much as I can. I’m looking forward to the experience itself.
