Serve the community

WHy this page Was created

  • The goal of this page is to better connect those who want to serve, with those in the community who need assistance. The creation of this page was part of a FHSU Fieldwork in Leadership Studies project, in collaboration with, Patrick McGinnis, the owner of Breathe Coffee House.

Why Volunteer/serve?

  • Volunteering is an excellent way to give back to the community and serve those who are in need of assistance. Helping others builds relationships while making a positive difference within the community.
