I participated in the point in time (PIT) count where I conducted intake interviews during meal times at Central United Methodist Church. I was able to speak to individuals who were/are experiencing homelessness and outline areas where they may need services. I was also able to help refer them to a community resource while also conducting research.

I went shopping at Walmart for diapers, infant medicine, utensils for Havenwood. Earlier in the semester a group of classmates of mine decided we would use the class service funds about $300 to buy necessary items that Havenwood's director told us are needed. Havenwood is a residential living facility for single mother who have one of two children. The residents are housed there for two years as they complete a program centered around self-sufficiency, growth, and empowerment. The women get to build their foundation there and then are allowed to take their skills and furnishings with them as they transition out of the facility. While toys do seem fun for the children, we decided to shop for non-traditional items as many of the children are ill and would benefit from medication that they may not have access to. Overall it was fun shopping with my classmate and dropping of the items to Havenwood.

Warehouse Sort

I organized donated clothes into individual boxes after taking off safety pins. These were then distributed to Potter's House in order to be sold at the thrift stores. Proceeds go to the Potter House Ministry that helps provide services to families in Fayetteville.

Event 2
I attended the Pulse Discussion over Sexual Assault that was held in the honors college. The panel was very interesting and the panelists brought knowledge across the board. I was able to learn more about services offered at the University such as STAR Central. Learning more about the title IX policy was also interesting because it is important for all students should be informed of the protections they have within the university. One highlight of the panel was that it emphasized the importance of bring so called taboo topics out into the light that way we can have informed and important conversations on issues that are constantly growing in our society. Overall I thought it was a great panel.

Volunteer Opportunity
I was involved with the student panel that presented in Silas Hunt for students from Rogers High School. It was fun answering questions that the students had since many of them were in the same position I was a few years ago. I went to Rogers High School so I was able to answer questions concerning commuting and be a helping hand to students who may not have one otherwise.

November SWAG Meeting
Boowling & Costume Party

It was interesting to see how a community came together to celebrate and enjoy a tradition that has been in Pea Ridge for so long. It was definitely an experience I will not forget. It was the Mule jump which is an event that is held in Pea Ridge where they watch mules jump over bars, race to see who has the fastest time, and which mule overall looks the best. I was able to coordinate other volunteers to their stations and told them what they needed to complete. I also gave out the ribbons and cash prizes to the winners. I also made sure participants were registering for the correct category.
