Vermont Campus Students Bring Hope to Cancer Patients and Families
A group of students from the Vermont Campus volunteered at the Hope Lodge in Burlington to make dinner for cancer patients and their families (home made pizza with salad was the featured special). The Hope Lodge provides free temporary housing and support services for patients and families traveling for outpatient cancer treatments. The visit was so well received that they are planning a return trip in November.
