Giving back to the community they live in is very important to the student ambassadors in the College of Human Sciences and Education. Their personal ties to the Ronald McDonald House had them tying blankets for those in need.
This month on Giving Hearts Day, 15 students volunteered to measure, cut and tie 10 child-sized blankets and five adult-sized blankets for those in need.
“These blankets are given to families of sick children who are in the hospital in the Fargo area,” said Andrea Richard, academic advisor in the College of Human Sciences and Education. “The blankets provide a personal touch for a lasting impact for families in need.”
Each semester HSE Ambassadors select a service project in order to give back to their community. Their efforts aim to expand relationships within the community, while spreading awareness of the college and organization.
“This project meant a lot to us as an organization because the College of Human Sciences and Education is known as a college focused on people,” said Morgan Pool, HSE Ambassador president. “Finding organizations like the Ronald McDonald House that are making a difference in the lives of others is where we want to help and show our support in any way possible.”
HSE Ambassadors are undergraduate students selected to represent the college at selected events for alumni, community leaders, prospective students and others. Students are selected through an application process. There are currently 30 student ambassadors.
