On Saturday May 21, the Stanbridge community gathered at the Lighthouse Outreach Ministries, the local outreach ministry of Mariners Church in Irvine, California, to help serve our homeless with lunch. In addition to volunteering time and effort, Stanbridge College provided funds to host the event as well as one-day bus passes to the people in attendance. Donations of food, clothing, and toiletry were also provided to those in need. View the inspirational video from this event on the Stanbridge YouTube Channel.
This event was a part of Stanbridge College’s REACH Beyond the Classroom, Service Learning initiative. Stanbridge College’s commitment to long-term community partnerships, creating a positive impact on local and global communities and incorporating Service Learning as an integral part of the curriculum is exemplified in our REACH – Beyond the Classroom initiative.
