Partners In Excellence Students Serve The Community

Description

Members of the military, shut-ins and hospital patients will be receiving cards and bookmarks for the upcoming holiday season, courtesy of the students involved in the Office of Multicultural Affairs’ Partners in Excellence program.

On Friday, Nov. 19, more than 100 students met in the Student Union for a night of holiday cheer, togetherness, craft-making and community service. The hours that these students put forward will go towards BGSU’s centennial goal of one million hours of service in 2010, as well as benefitting the recipients of the cards and bookmarks!

BGSU’s Director of Service Learning, Dr. Jane Rosser, gave an encouraging speech at the event. She thanked the students for their great contribution towards the service field while emphasizing its importance and upcoming service opportunities, such as January’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.

The ‘MLK Day of Service’ takes place on Jan. 17—King’s birthday—and encourages members of the community to participate in a variety of service activities such as paining rooms or organizing book groups. The next Partners in Excellence event will also take place on the ‘MLK Day of Service,’ and will contribute to the combined efforts of the event. Stay tuned to the Office of Multicultural Affairs website for more information on the event on the event—we hope to see you there!
