Here is an excerpt from the All Soul's Church Newsletter Monday Night Hospitality in New York City:
Appalachian State University of North Carolina
In May, a volunteer team from a leading Nursing and Social Work School – part of Appalachian State University joined us again on what has become an annual donation of service. These are wonderful students (and their professors) that have already decided on a life of service. Their school is in the Blue Ridge Mountains and a bit far from major cities, so serving in New York City is a truly exciting opportunity for them. For many of them their career choices may involve helping those who are in as much need as our guests. We would be fortunate to have any one of them join a New York health institution. Our senior social worker, John Sheehan, LCMSW, provided a lecture on urban poverty and the medical issue faced by the homeless in New York. The students will then join him at Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church for a longer lecture on the health issues facing those of limited means living in shelters and on the streets.
If you would like to donate to this fantastic cause, please click here to help the organization reach their goal of $150,000.
Thank you to our Appalachian students and faculty who represent our University with service to others.
