Outreach Programs

Across the curriculum, our social justice emphasis fosters ethical behavior and civic engagement. We actively serve our neighbors with thousands of volunteer hours a year. We share our gifts with the less fortunate, providing books to the school-aged victims of Hurricane Katrina and adopting a Guatemalan village. Through academics and outreach, the College’s mission extends far beyond the classroom. In addition to monthly outreach projects, the following projects are ongoing.

Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels is a community program that utilizes volunteers to deliver hot, nutritious meals to homebound elderly, ill and disabled Lake County residents, as well as adults and children in day cares. Our volunteers play a critical role in helping to feed those in need. The College’s volunteers deliver meals every Monday to residents in the Whiting-Robertsdale area.
