       “Participating in community service activities helps to enhance student resumes by allowing students to obtain work-related skills prior to graduation, builds good references for employers in regard to community involvement, and provides a forum to network with future potential employers. It also helps students develop civic and social responsibility skills and become more aware of what their community needs."

   The safety and comfort of clients, volunteers, and donors, is very important to us. With Covid-19 continuing to rank high on Indiana's survey-based list of mental and physical health concerns, hand and surface spray disinfectants available. Masks are optional but we have no problem wearing one on request and ask that unvaccinated persons wear masks as a social courtesy.
