    YWCA

    Melissa gave to YWCA

    Melissa gave to YWCA

    It was great to meet Erica Doe to get to know each other, and to discuss the mentorship program and expectations as a student in a service learning class.

    Melissa @ Foggy Bottom West End Village

    Assisting seniors locally is an integral part of being members of the communities in which we live. I had a great experience assisting a member of FBWE Village with grocery shopping and walking around her neighborhood.

    Gave 2.00 hours on 03/08/2020 with HSSJ 2172 Adult Development, Kappa Alpha Theta
    GW Dance Marathon

    While I was only able to do 9 of the 12 hours of DM, it was an amazing opportunity to raise money and meet resilient children who have battled health conditions and won thanks to the amazing work of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

    Gave 9.00 hours on 02/29/2020 with Kappa Alpha Theta
    We Are Family

    Delivering groceries to low income seniors in Columbia Heights was a reflective experience to see how people who live so close to us are being under served, and without this program would be further food insecure or financially unstable.

    Gave 3.00 hours on 02/29/2020 with HSSJ 2172 Adult Development, Kappa Alpha Theta
    We Are Family

    It was a great experience delivering necessary groceries to low income seniors in the North Capitol neighborhood.

    Gave 3.50 hours on 02/22/2020 with HSSJ 2172 Adult Development, Kappa Alpha Theta
    The Store

    This was my first time going to the Store, and I was so happy I could lend my services to an unsung service on campus. I restocked food items, cleaned around the food pantry, and helped with trash clean up. As a student who has often worried about how food insecurity might affect me at GW one day, it was comforting to know there is a safety net available that provides not only nonperishable food products, but professional clothing, sanitary products, and fresh food items as well.

    Melissa @ Amara Legal Center

    Preparing the volunteer toolkit for Amara Legal Center was a great way to highlight the amazing work Amara does as well as our own experiences and abilities in event planning and outreach. While COVID-19 created unprecedented circumstances, I hope to one day be able to see the toolkit be implemented.

    Gave 30.00 hours between 02/05/2020 and 04/29/2020 with HSSJ 2200 Ethical Leadership, Kappa Alpha Theta, Courses: Community Engaged Scholarship, George Washington University
    Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service & Leadership 2020

    Having positive impacts on the community, whether that be organizing a roof garden or cleaning an art classroom, is a reflective and useful way to spend the day off to celebrate MLK's vision for everyone's ability to do service.

    Gave 6.00 hours on 01/20/2020 with Fraternity and Sorority Life (FSL), George Washington University, GW College Democrats, Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service, Kappa Alpha Theta, Panhellenic Association, Student Organizations
