“I’m Doing the Most Good in Worcester, MA!”
For day two of National Salvation Army Week, this morning’s submission for our “I Do the Most Good” campaign comes from Worcester, MA!
The Transportation Manager at the College of the Holy Cross wanted to spotlight the amazing volunteers of Student Programs for Urban Development (SPUD), the College’s philanthropic group that serves various groups of community members in need.
SPUD volunteers are always up to some good work in the community. Whether it’s tutoring kids at The Salvation Army, visiting the elderly, participating in Big Brothers and Big Sisters, teaching English, socializing with the terminally ill, coaching sports, helping newly landed refugees, or serving meals at Salvation Army shelters (wooh!), the program offers students the opportunity to serve in some capacity seven days a week.
Not only are the students Doing the Most Good, so are the drivers who coordinate the students’ travel back and forth each day!
The time that this group spends volunteering adds up to 1,200 man hours every week. We’re officially amazed!
Thank you, SPUD volunteers for Doing the Most Good for those in the most need!
