This year, volunteers will collaborate with numerous agencies in the local community, including the Midnight Run, POTS Soup Kitchen, local elementary schools, Habitat for Humanity, American Cancer Society, Sister of Charity of New York, as well as participate in campus projects and student-led initiatives. Students will also have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of service and the mission of the College.
Matthew Shields, Director for Campus Ministry says “Our Month of Service will be catalyst to ignite more avenues for our students to engage in opportunities of service and leadership all across campus with our dedicated administration, faculty, and staff serving as valuable mentors.”
The “Month of Service” will conclude with the “Pictures of Service” exhibit on November 7, 2013 in Benedict’s, Founders Hall. The gallery will feature photographs taken by students to portray and reflect upon their various service projects.
