Hope Students: Time to Serve at Nuestra Casa

Hope College - Time to Serve event

On Labor Day weekend, while many people are enjoying the last remnants of summer, a crew of Hope College students came to work at Nuestra Casa, where they completed the access ramp and began painting primer on the walls. It wasn’t the first time Hope students have helped out. They also volunteered in 2011 as part of the Time to Serve volunteer program.

An annual Hope College event since 2000, Time to Serve is an opportunity for incoming freshmen, led by upperclassmen, to work in crews of six to ten people at locations around the Holland/Zeeland area. It’s part of their freshmen orientation, which is meant to introduce the new students to Hope’s mission–to educate students for lives of leadership and service–while acquainting them with the Holland community.

We’re glad Hope chose Nuestra Casa as one of the many sites to receive attention around town. Check out the volunteers’ accomplishments in the slideshow.

Thank you, Hope students!
