Students Volunteer at Opportunity House

Penn State Berks students will volunteer their time to prepare and serve a meal at Opportunity House, the Reading Emergency Shelter, on Sunday, March 29. The group will leave campus at 9:00 a.m. and will return to campus at 1:00 p.m. All students are welcome to participate.

"Participating in community service is an important aspect of student development," commented Jeffrey Fazio, Student Activities Coordinator. "When students spend a few hours preparing a meal for people who are less fortunate than they are, it is a powerful moment when they actually get to serve the food to them. The rewards and benefits are immediately felt by all, and this has led to a significant increase in the number of students that want to participate in this event."
