Hellenic College junior Victoria Anselmo says she “had the most wonderful time” volunteering at Community Servings, a not-for-profit organization that prepares and delivers almost 10,000 nutritious meals each week to homebound individuals and families living with critical and chronic illness. “Many of the tasks we did were simple, yet they made a huge difference, especially since the people we served had various illnesses that required special diets. I would encourage anyone who wants to feel like they are really making a difference to volunteer there.”
Community Servings is one of a number of local organizations where students in Hellenic College’s Community Engagement course can fulfill both the requirement to perform volunteer service and Christ’s command to love our neighbors as ourselves.
