2 What is service learning? Service-Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

3 Benefits of Community Service A sense of pride and happiness in helping others Strengthening your community Fostering a sense of responsibility Building tolerance Solving problems Bonding within the community Improvement of lives

4 American Red Cross I donated blood at several of the VSU blood drives. Every pint donated can save up to 3 lives.

5 FYE Tennis Toss I helped number the 250 tennis balls that were included in the tennis toss that benefited various programs such as American Red Cross and Safe Haven.

6 Lowndes County Animal Shelter I spent an evening at the animal shelter making sure the animals were cared for (had food, water, clean pens) and then enjoyed playing with them for social time.

7 International Pancake Day! Anyone who came to IHOP on International Pancake Day received a free plate of pancakes. A donations box was placed at the front of the restaurant and all the money gathered benefited The Childrens Miracle Network.
