Faculty, Students Lend Helping Hand During Holidays

January 7, 2013

Palm Beach Atlantic University faculty and students helped to make the holiday season brighter for families around Palm Beach County.

Professor of English Dr. Kathleen Anderson organized a Workship project in December in which she and a dedicated group of 18 PBA students painted a house with recycled paint for a family on a limited income.

The project was through the “Paint Your Heart Out” program of the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County.

“We enjoyed getting to know the family, all of whose members worked alongside us (including their grandmother),” Dr. Anderson said.

A few weeks earlier, students in the MacArthur School of Leadership Values: Personal and Social course gave back to the community by volunteering at least four hours of their time during the Thanksgiving holiday to the Christ Fellowship-Big Heart Brigade Thanksgiving event.

This event brings together volunteers to cook turkeys, prepare meals and deliver about 100,000 Thanksgiving meals to needy families. The Values: Personal and Social course is the capstone course of the MacArthur School of Leadership’s organizational management program.
