Health For All

Health For All is a philanthropic organization that centers around providing affordable healthcare to marginalized groups in the Bryan-College Station area. As a part of Texas A&M SLOPE (Sophomores Leading On Promoting Equaility), I was able to help fundraise for them through a charity car wash and trivia night. For last year, we were able to raise over 2500 dollars for them through the events. This year, we hope to raise even more and hopefully volunteer physically now that COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.

The Big Event

Annually, Texas A&M hosts an event where organizations and clubs around campus get to partake in activities that service the community. As a member of Texas A&M SLOPE, I was tasked with helping mulch a sweet couple's garden. I personally have never done a lot of lawn work in my life, but the experience of helping the two of them with my friends meant a lot. I learned that the husband used to be a professor at A&M and that his wife does volunteering for the Presidential Library. I hope to have similar fun for next year's Big Event.

No Kid Hungry

No Kid Hungry is an organization that's mission is to end child hunger in the United States. I have had the wonderful opportunity of volunteering and even working for No Kid Hungry on multiple occasions. In high school, I helped run their booth at HOSA Nationals where I was able to enlighten sponsors and students about the organizations cause. I also volunteered at a Dine-Out event in which No Kid Hungry teams up with a local organization at a restuarant where proceeds go towards their cause. I would say my biggest experience with them was the Summer I spent as a No Kid Hungry Youth Ambassador for Texas. Working with CitySquare, a Dallas organization seeking to help marginalized communities in the area, I was tasked with garnering outreach for their mobile meals program. The mobile meals program serves free daily meals to kids up to the age of 18 with no paperwork or forms at all necessary. There are many children across the country that have trouble receiving a constant, nutritious food source to live their life healthily. No Kid Hungry and CitySquare seek to bring that to an end. With my work with them, I was glad I was able to make a difference for as many kids as I interacted with.

Second Chance Prom - Frisco Interact Rotary

As a member of my school's Rotary Club, I had the opportunity to help set up two Second Chance Proms for the elderly at a local memory care facility. Second Chance Prom is basically an event where the residents of the facility could experience a prom akin to the ones high schoolers have. There were festivities, food, and dancing! It was a great experience. I personally had a grandfather that had dementia so it meant a lot that I was able to brighten many of the residents' day with a small event.
