Mission: Possible
One of Shenandoah University’s core values is “dedication to citizenship, professional service and global outreach.” So, on occasional Saturday mornings throughout the academic year, students, faculty and staff gather in the Goodson Chapel / Recital Hall parking lot and then head out to nearby locations, where they volunteer their time and energy to enhance life for others. On any Saturday, groups might:

work with at-risk children at the Boys and Girls Club
build a house with Habitat for Humanity
harvest surplus produce from the fields at a farm
help stock a local food pantry
entertain residents at a local nursing home
sort material at the recycling center
care for cats and dogs at the SPCA

“Being able to go out and know your work is positively affecting others is a wonderful feeling. Time is the most important gift we can give anyone, and giving that gift on a Saturday morning – when you could sleep in – is what life is all about.”
– Micah Melton, business major
