The Alternative Break Program is a way for students to volunteer in another community. This year, we are going to New Orleans, LA (NOLA). NOLA is still in devastation from Hurricane Katrina and is still in great need of our help. It is also rich in a culture that most of our Frostburg students have never experienced before. It is a great way for students to get joy out of helping others, see a new city and make new friends. We will be volunteering with the Lower 9th Ward Village, the Arc of New Orleans recycling Mardi Gras Beads, the Audubon Zoo and Habitat for Humanity. The trip runs from January 7th through January 15th. The group in this picture went to New Orleans to recycle Mardi Gras beads.  
For more information, contact Ashley Daniels in the Office of Volunteerism and National Service.

Volunteerism and National Service is sponsoring:

Through the 12th Annual Sponsor-a-Family Program, departments and organizations on campus can help make a difference in a family's life in Western Maryland by providing a food basket to a needy family. Over the past 11 years the Sponsor-a-Family Program has provided Thanksgiving baskets for over 400 families in Western Maryland.


If your office or organization is interested in sponsoring a family for the Thanksgiving Holiday, or you would like more information, please e-mail Clarissa Lang at the Office of Volunteerism and National Service for further details ASAP.  Last year we helped over 70 families have a wonderful meal. All baskets will be delivered on the Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving.

Oxfam Hunger Banquet 
Monday, 11/14
from 7-8:30 PM
Lane University Center
Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall 


The Oxfam Hunger Banquet is a great way to learn more about world hunger and the affects it has on people around the world. The program will talk about how many people go to bed hungry at night, how many do not know where their next meal is coming from and what we can do to make a difference. Both participants and volunteers are needed! Particpants should bring a canned good or monetary donation for the Frostburg Food Pantry.


If you are interested in volunteering for Oxfam, please email Ashley Daniels - A STAR! AmeriCorps VOICE Clearinghouse Coordinator or call 301.687.7598.

Student of the Week  
Jamie Irvine

Jamie Irvine, '12 Graduate student working on her Master's of Education in School Counseling, is the A STAR! AmeriCorps Read to Succeed Coordinator. Jamie has contributed her time and skills to Volunteerism & National Service in the past, but got involved with Read to Succeed because she wanted to work with academic enrichment. Read to Succeed helps children grades K - 8 after school. Jamie would like to go into school counseling after graduation and says that her involvement has helped her learn to "build rapport with parents and children." Of volunteering, Jamie says that "the best way to serve [a cause] is to be a part of it."
