Boise State University students were recently invited to get more involved in their community by taking part in Service Saturdays, which kick off on Feb. 4 with the chance to help refugees make a home in a new land.
The first event is organized through Agency for New Americans, which helps immigrants assimilate into U.S. society. Volunteers are needed to collect donations like household supplies, furniture, and bathroom and hygiene articles for delivery to refugee families.
Benefits to the volunteers include becoming civically engaged, meeting like-minded individuals, building leadership abilities and even receiving a free breakfast ahead of a hard day's work.
