With the holiday season in full swing, students and alumni alike are snatching up gifts for friends and family. But during this season of giving, CSU Stanislaus provides many ways to help those in need.
CSU Stanislaus senior Stephanie Hopper started volunteering at the United Samaritans Foundation as a community service requirement for her Business Ethics and Social Responsibility course. Every week, she and her fellow students help prepare or serve food to the homeless and low-income residents of Turlock or sort clothing for the foundation’s clothes closet.
“The feeling you get from volunteering is not something that can be bought or given to you,” Hopper said. “It’s an overwhelming feeling of gratification knowing that one person really can make a difference.”
The United Samaritans Foundation welcomes volunteers to help prepare or serve meals and/or assist in the office and other facilities. To volunteer for the United Samaritans Foundation, visit unitedsamaritans.org or call (209) 668-4853.
The fall semester is wrapping up, but several university organizations are still accepting donations at the CSU Stanislaus campus in Turlock:
Phi Lambda Rho sorority is supporting Emanuel Hospital by collecting teddy bears and pajamas in MSR 290 and the lobbies of Demergasso-Bava Hall, Bizzini Hall and the library until Dec. 13.
