Me, working at Joe's
Contributed by: Brad Fuller
Friday night was my first night working by myself at Joe’s Java, a coffee shop within Sugartree Ministries, the local food pantry. They offer a full service coffee bar to help raise money to buy food for the ministry, and I am the new volunteer barista on Friday nights. It is a 10-minute walk from campus and will soon be open Monday-Saturday until 10 or 11pm. Joe’s is a great place to hang out, even if you aren’t into coffee. This past Friday there were around 15 students there and I hope to recruit more within the next few weeks. I only learned how to make specialty coffee drinks a couple weeks ago, but it is something that I already enjoy a lot. I like interacting with people (especially interesting people), and interesting people seem to flock to coffee shops of any kind. I was there hour hours Friday and it seemed to go very quickly. If you are a current student or faculty member, come get coffee from me next Friday! If you are a prospective student, come get coffee from me on Friday and I will tell you everything you need to know about Wilmington! It will be a great time. If you are into service and being somewhere with positive, giving spirit, Sugartree Ministries is the place to be. I’m sure I will talk much more about it in the future.
