Although the Service Program focuses on five issue areas, we provide support for on your own service in many other areas and students from other crews on campus provide leadership for regular service activities in those areas. Such as animal welfare, health, social justice, etc. If you have any questions, contact Mara McLaughlin-Taylor at email@example.com or 828-771-3065. There is a weekly newsletter of service opportunities sent out on the student-l if you are looking to do something that is not focused on in our issue areas.
- Black Mountain Neuro-Medical Treatment Center is a residential facility for adults with developmental disabilities, Alzheimer's, dementia, or other lifelong afflictions. The weekly service trip goes during the center's Bud Lewis night which is when a group of musicians come and play folk music for the residents. As volunteers we assist the nurses by transporting the residents and spend time with the residents clapping and singing along. Near the end we sing a couple of songs like the "Hokey Pokey," "You Are My Sunshine," and "Country Roads." This is a closed service trip for this Spring 2014 semester because there is already a committed group of volunteers. If you are interested in knowing more or are interested in becoming a committed volunteer for the Fall 2014 semester please email Deanna Dragan firstname.lastname@example.org
