Social Justice Area: Health & Elder Care this year!
Why I am passionate about service: Personally, I think this is a social justice area that is vastly overlooked and there are persistent stigmas surrounding elder care that I think we should be tackling. Hopefully, we will all live long lives, and while that is incredible, we also need to prepare for our expanding elderly population, which includes increasing quality of living situations and treatment. At the very least, we should be helping to improve elder care for our own benefit. Two of our most popular volunteer sites are the VA Hospital and Heights Crossing, so if you are at all interested in learning more about elder care, don't hesitate to get involved and help in any way that you can!
