Volunteering comes with a rewarding feeling, and if you are looking for ways to volunteer at the end of the semester, Habitat for Humanity has partnered with Council of Staff Affairs(COSA) for an event for all students: Blazer Build Month. This event is not only for the students but it’s for all the members of the VSU community. It’s dedicated to building homes for underprivileged members of the community.
All members of the VSU community can participate in this event. This was the main reason for coming up with Blazer Build Month.
COSA wanted to put together a community service project that the entire campus could participate in to give back to a community that gives so much to VSU.
Most people cannot donate an entire month of their time to help out with Blazer Build Month, which is understandable. The members of COSA have put that into consideration. Individuals don’t have to volunteer the entire month, they can pick whenever they are free to volunteer. It can rangeto as short as an hour or longer.
Every hour put into this month will help. This is the first time that COSA has done something for all members of VSU to participate. They have had different VSU organizations participate in the past. The organizer of Blazer Build Month would love for it to become a tradition. Blazer Build Month is a great cause because it provides for those without shelter.
This month is dedicated to help the people of the community. Volunteers are the soul of this event. People of the VSU community have responded well to Blazer Build Month by filling volunteer spots quickly.
If you are planning to volunteer for Blazer Build Month, hurry, because you may miss your chance. This will be the last major event for the academic school year. COSA hopes that more VSU organizations will be gracious enough to collaborate in the future.
Hopefully Blazer Build Month will continue to be a success for Habitat for Humanity.
