A Pathway to Service
October 22, 2011
Service comes in many different forms and the definition may vary from person to person. Whether you are volunteering at Abbe Hall or Victory house,
one type of service is not necessarily better than the other because each meets a different community need. We try to offer programs that are meaningful
and it is important to recognize that every person can do their part in making our community a better place to live and learn. Take advantage of
opportunities to help others and sign up for some of our programs!
As always, feel free to e-mail us at email@example.com if you have any questions, or
would like to get involved!

Holiday Hope Chest
Would your group or organization like to provide gifts for South Bethlehem children in need this holiday season? We invite you to take part in the Holiday Hope Chest program. In coalition with the Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley, we hope to fill over 150 gift boxes for children in our area. If your group would like to participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with how many boxes you will be able to create! We will then provide you with the first names, ages and genders of the children who will be receiving your Holiday Hope Chests. We ask groups to fill shoeboxes with new items appropriate for the age and gender of the recipient. Your contributions make a tremendous difference to South Bethlehem families in need. We look forward to hearing from you!
Feel Good Friday
Each Friday the Community Service Office takes a group of volunteers to an on or off campus site for a service event. Potential events include going to Abbe Hall to work with senior citizens or to Volunteers of America where volunteers spend their time with kids in the Lehigh Valley. Trips generally last from 3-5pm, and this month they will take place on 11/18. This is a great opportunity to volunteer and brighten someone elses day.
