One of SGA’s goals for the current sessions is to get our members more involved in community service. Vice President Jacob Miller organized two volunteering opportunities for the fall semester, and plans to organize at a couple more for the spring semester.
Just before Thanksgiving break, six SGA members went to New Jerusalem Missions (an organization in Newton that serves as a shelter and resource center for those in need) and did some volunteering.
Some of us helped pick out Christmas gifts for families from a room that had been filled with toys from a recent toy run. Others helped with cleaning and repairing things in a large room in the building.
Serving in our community is a great way for us to give back, and it’s great to step outside of ourselves and help others. SGA plans to continue volunteering in various ways around the community in the future.
Thank you to the organizations that provide us with the opportunity to come and serve. We greatly appreciate it and and hope to do more!
