I tutor elementary school children in at-risk communities during and after-school. Help build houses for Habitat for Humanity where we reached our 100th house finished mark in December 2014. We recently responded to disasters to provide housing in our extended service trip to New Orleans in December 2014. Assisted in the sorting and distribution of food and gardening with Lafayette's FoodNet. Teamed up with other organizations on campus with in thier service projects. Planned the yearly prom dress and accessory give-back day, providing over 300 high school girls with free prom dresses. Also I bring in other volunteers to my service events to encourage others to also give back to the Lafayette community.
