At the annual Outreach Day recently held on Aug. 27, Rice University students and community members partnered to help serve Houston.
Hosted by Rice’s Center for Civic Leadership (CCL) and the
Rice Student Volunteer Program (RSVP), Outreach Day was created to teach those
participating in the event about social issues that Houston is facing. It is
not seen as “one day of service,” but instead “Day One of service.”
The focus of this year’s Outreach Day was the Houston area
refugee resettlement with more than 200 Rice student’s teaming up with
Interfaith Ministries, Amaanah Refugee Services, Society of St. Vincent de
Paul, Plant it Forward and Sewa International Houston.
“The purpose was to highlight refugee contributions to the
city of Houston, increase awareness of refugee services and advertise future
volunteer opportunities for Rice students,” Outreach Day coordinator Thasha Uche said.
