There are a ton of volunteer opportunities even here on the campus and within the community. There's Alternative Breaks.
We have The Pantry, which is a no questions asked, anyone can access it resource for free food. So you can take as much food as you need, and so a lot of students will donate food or access food. A lot of organizations will raise money and donate to the food pantry.
There's been opportunities with organizations I've been involved with, like our Campus Ambassadors, to be involved in service of different community groups. And also, SGA is involved right now in, we did a school supplies drive, and we're going to take school supplies to an impoverished community in south Alabama. And we partnered with other institutions to do that. So being able to partner with other schools in our region to do things is really meaningful, to go beyond your campus and say that we're all in this together as a state and as a country.
The athletic programs do a really good job of having their student athletes participate in community service events, so for Lions Lend a Hand and for MLK Serve Day, for softball, we actually served as a team. And we got to work with all the other athletes as well as the other parts of the Greek community or just service groups on campus, we had the chance to serve with them.
The reason why I like to give back and volunteer my time, especially at UNA, is I know it's for students just like me, who maybe just don't have all the resources that I've been blessed to have.
It just gives you a good feeling. Seeing that they're happy just makes you happy. And that's what's really rewarding for me. Not just helping people, but forging those bonds is a really big deal.
