VISION holds challenge for student organizations

Haley Moraniec, coordinator for the Volunteer Challenge at the VISION Center, said that this is VISION’s first year doing “the challenge,” a program designed to familiarize students with social justice issues and get them involved with service projects.

“If all goes well, we plan to make it an annual challenge,” Moraniec said.

All student organizations were invited by Campus Life to participate. The group that completes the most service hours by April will win money for their organization.

  • 1st place - $500
  • 2nd place - $300
  • 3rd place - $200

“VISION works with many social injustices and one of the things that we do as an organization is try to educate our students about how they are affecting our community and student body,” she said.

Students are welcome to visit the Center’s office to pick up an “Emergency Resource Guide.” The guide has information for those in need of food, housing, etc.

On Wednesday, Oct. 22, at 6 p.m. VISION is collaborating with Social Welfare Action Alliance to host an educational session about food justice. The event is titled “A Place at the Table” and will be held in the Halle Library Auditorium. All are welcome to attend and the event is LBC approved.

“We will try to be hosting educational sessions monthly about the different social justice theme for the month,” Moraniec said.
