On Friday, January 25th, Hilbert College students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in Unity with Our Community, a service day devoted to carrying on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in our community. This day is an opportunity for us at Hilbert to connect with the work Dr. King advocated for and to understand the importance of taking action to promote equality, justice, respect, and compassion.
Current community partners for the day include:
Compass House: Provides runaway, homeless, and street youth with safe shelter and services. Compass House stands as one of the nation's oldest shelter and service providers for youth of all gender identities, offering shelter, counseling, and so much more.
Family Promise of WNY: One of only two emergency shelters in Erie County that keep families together which include fathers and teenage sons. The agency's mission is to unite faith communities and people of good will in responding to the needs of families experiencing homelessness in our community.
Food Bank of WNY: The primary hunger-relief organization in Western New York. The agency obtains nutritious food and distributes support to our community members throughout Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Niagara Counties.
Little Portion Friary: A volunteer-run organization that brings forth the mission of the Catholic Church to provide food for the hungry, clothing for the undressed, and shelter for the homeless.
Salvation Army in Buffalo: Provides a variety of programs and services that annually benefit over 30,000 economically disadvantaged people. The Salvation Army is an integral part of the local human service network, providing housing, clothing, nutritional, social, and spiritual assistance through a wide range of separate but interrelated programs and services.
S.S. Columba Brigid: A neighborhood, multicultural Catholic church where all are welcome.
Veterans One Stop: A local non-profit that unites and empowers veterans, service members, and their families. The agency provides free services and resources such as employment, financial counseling, legal, housing, and education to ease the transition from military to civilian life.
Please join your fellow volunteers for breakfast in the Campus Center Dining Hall beginning at 8:45 a.m. Transportation to and from our community partners will be provided, along with lunch upon our return to campus.
