Music that soothes the soul, volunteer from Musical Resources at HVAFMarch 25, 2016
Iowa State University’s Greek Alternative Spring Break students had the opportunity to volunteer at HVAF of Indiana. Members tied their experiences to their fraternal values through a series of visits to not-for-profits across Central Indiana.
Twenty members volunteered on March 16 to paint the American flag in the Vet2Vet room which is used weekly as a support group for veterans to discuss issues or obstacles day-to-day as they work towards self-sufficiency. The students also learned more about homelessness.
“I felt like I needed to explore my service opportunities and it is fun to see the impact we will have made by providing a brighter, more creative space for these veterans,” says Morgan Hulick, 20.
“It’s good to see the work we have done from beginning to end.”
The students left as friends with renewed purpose. They made memories to last a lifetime.
