A Pathway to Service
September 1, 2011
As the new year begins, the Community Service Office would like to welcome both the returning and new students. We are glad that all of you share our passion to serve, and throughout the year we hope to provide you with the best opportunities to volunteer. We have been busy planning a variety of activities for the semester, including soup kitchens, blood drives, Spooktacular, and many other service events. This newsletter is the primary way that the Community Service Office will inform you of upcoming events on the Lehigh campus and Bethlehem in the community, so keep an eye open for it each month. If you need assistance in scheduling or advertising for your own service event, send us any relevant information and we will be sure to help you out.
As always, feel free to e-mail us at email@example.com if you have any questions, or
would like to get involved!
Spotlight: America Reads/Counts Work Study
Through this program, Lehigh student volunteers and work study employees have the unique opportunity to work with elementary and middle school students

Upcoming Volunteer opportunities for you
Pacing Break SERVE
This year's pacingbreakSERVE will focus on issues of food accessibility, poverty, and homelessness in our nation's capital. Whether participants are delivering
food to those with HIV/AIDS with Food & Friends, sorting donations at the Capital Area Food Bank, or providing assistance to the poor and homeless with SOME,
this trip will give participants a broad overview of issues that are relevant not only in the Washington, DC area, but in our community. Applications are due
on September 14th.
Bethlehem Youth Medical Reserve Corps
As a student in the Medical Reserve Corps you will assist and collaborate with existing community and public health agencies to effectively use our vital
community and medical resources in response to a major natural or manmade disaster.
Volunteers Needed for Hospice Facility
Arcadia Hospice provides hospice care to patients in Northampton and Lehigh County. The students would be able to visit with patients in either nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Arcadia Hospice has been working with other colleges in the area and the experience that the students have been receiving is remarkable, not to mention the relationships that have developed between the volunteers and the patients.
