A Year of Community Service for Blackwood Campus Students
Melissa Parkin, May 2017 graduate, BS in Nursing program at our Blackwood Campus, reported on student-led community outreach activities conducted over the past year. “This year, we hosted our own career event in January; provided free blood pressure screenings at the Blackwood Pumpkin Festival in October; volunteered at Cathedral Kitchen; donated Christmas presents to two local children in foster care through Bianca's Kids foundation; and donated clothing to the Twin Oaks mental health facility. With money we raised throughout the year, we made 50 ‘Blessing Bags’ filled with toiletries, socks, snacks, and other items that we presented to Unforgotten Haven for distribution to homeless individuals in our community. View Blessings Bags photos. On May 7th, we volunteered at the Field of Dreams in Absecon, NJ, a baseball field designed for those with disabilities and able to accommodate walkers and wheelchairs. We played baseball and ran the bases with visiting children and served at the concession stand. We had a wonderful, exciting time.” View photos at Field of Dreams.
