SIUE Showcases a Host of Giving Opportunities at Volunteer Fair

Dallas Hopper is a sophomore at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville whose major is at the moment undecided. However, the student knows she loves children and helping people and was excited to attend SIUE’s Fall 2015 Volunteer Fair. 

 “The purpose of the Volunteer Fair is mutually beneficial to students, faculty, staff and the attending nonprofit agencies,” said Sarah Laux, assistant director of Civic Engagement at SIUE’s Kimmel Student Involvement Center. “The students and SIUE community have the opportunity to learn about the countless volunteer opportunities available at area nonprofits. This fair also provides the participating nonprofits with greater access to the SIUE community to showcase their volunteer opportunities and make connections with students.”

Approximately 40 vendors participated in Wednesday’s fair.

“I want to do all of them. I just love volunteering,” said Emilee Hug, a sophomore majoring in psychology. “I enjoyed learning about Caritas Family Solutions. They are an adoption and foster parent agency. My heart is to be a foster parent or adopt one day.”

“There are a lot of good agencies here,” Hopper said, “but I’m particularly interested in the Good Samaritan House. They are helping people in need by making blankets and providing basic necessities.”

The Good Samaritan House in Granite City can house 10 families at a time, which consist of mothers and up to 30 children, said Janice Donaldson, executive director and SIUE alumna, with a bachelor’s and master’s in social work in 2008 and 2009, respectively.

“I enjoy coming to the Volunteer Fair here, because SIUE community always receives us so well and we can find people who want to help,” Donaldson said. “We are not just a shelter for women and their children. Each family has their own bedroom.

“We provide workshops, teach life skills, offer mock job interviews, parenting classes and budgeting classes, help mothers get their General Equivalency Degree and more.”     

“We had a great event this year,” Laux said. “Students were eagerly seeking ways to become more involved in the surrounding community and provide service to others.”

Chancellor Stephen Hansen meets Jordan Oliver and Ronald Hampton, both from South Shore International College Prep High School in Chicago, Illinios, and Akeiala Bailey of Calumet City.Southern Illinois University Edwardsville freshmen living in first-year residence halls and transfer students in Cougar Village had special visitors Tuesday night. More than 65 volunteer faculty, staff and administrators, including Chancellor Stephen Hansen and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Jeffrey Waple, knocked on doors and welcomed the new students during University Housing’s annual House Calls event.

“This was our 11th year conducting House Calls,” explained Vicky Dean, assistant director of University Housing for Residential Education and event coordinator. “Our volunteers handed out candy, asked students about their first week of classes and answered their questions. It’s a wonderful way to personally welcome our new students and help them feel at home.”

A special effort was made to assign faculty and staff Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Jeffrey Waple greets and offers candy to Jill Crabtree, a freshman majoring in marketing, and Maddie Barra, freshman psychology major, both from Pekin, Illinois.volunteers to specific communities within the residence halls. For instance, Dean says, engineering faculty may have had the opportunity to begin forming relationships with students who are in the engineering focused interest community (FIC) and who they may work with throughout the year.

“In addition to welcoming students, volunteers also urged students to ask questions in class, get involved and study,” added Dean. “One goal of House Calls is to encourage the success of our first-year students and empower them to solve problems. It’s also an opportunity to identify any potential problems early in the semester and direct students to help if needed or follow-up with the residence life staff.”
