Thanksgiving. I work at Northern Virginia Community College and in October, I had assigned my class the assignment of
making a commercial or PSA about something they are passionate about.
The students were in groups of about five and were to create a video to
screen in the class. This group decided to begin a community service at
the church across from our campus. None of these students had
volunteered before and the community service-- giving food to people who
are not homeless, but struggling financially, really touched them. They
told the class how the people were just like all of us and were
"normal", not the stereotype we have of people who are poor and hungry.
Thought I'd share their experience.
