Social Work Society Aids Community

Coming to life again just three short years ago, the leaders of the Social Work Society, have made tremendous inroads into meeting the mission of their organization. These leaders and other members of the organization have been successful in hosting several bake sales on campus to raise money for individuals and organizations. On the local level, they have had the opportunity to partner with community agencies such as Metropolitan Ministries, March of Dimes, Everyday Blessings, and Heartland for Children to collect various items including food, clothing, toys, etc. Depending on the needs of the individuals and families served by these local groups, and to participate in activities with clients of their services. Most recently, the Social Work Society formed a partnership with BRIDGE Healthcare Clinic to raise funds to benefit the beneficiaries of the medical clinic. The student run free clinic provides routine medical care and linkages to community resources for uninsured adults in the university area community. One of the top needs identified for this client population was transportation. As a result, funds from the recent bake sale held at the main library by the Social Work Society supported the purchase of 40 bus passes for the clients of BRIDGE, an incredible outcome of this effort.
