Serving Simply Volunteers
DPT Class of 2021
On October 27 DPT student and volunteer coordinator Erica Hoot joined her cohort and the organization Serving Simply to support those in our community who need a little extra help and encouragement.
Erica explained their role this way, "There will be jobs for some to serve food, while others socialize. The socializing aspect of the night is really important to encourage people through any hard times they may be going through, or to simply have good conversation. After everyone is done eating we will set up tables full of supplies, clothes, and toiletries. Afterwards, we all get together to talk and pray as a group. The organization is very excited to have us, and I’m extremely grateful to go to school with wonderful souls who are willing to donate time out of their Saturday night."
As you can see, Erica was very successful in rallying her enthusiastic classmates!
