Academy Students Help Our Community
Several UD students volunteered at the Metropolitan Ministries on Friday, March 1, 2013.
Soon after they arrived, the students were placed in three different groups: a group of students boxed items and helped in the kitchen area, others assisted in the ware house and categorized the foods according to expiration dates, while the third group organized the shopping center.
Mike Mauger, class of 2015, who volunteered in the warehouse reflected, “I realize how lucky I am to have a full refrigerator and pantry.” Blake Bernard, 2014, also benefitted from the experience “It feels good to help. I’m glad they have something to look forward to and food to eat.”
