This summer several students volunteered at the RAM House in Roanoke, VA. The RAM house, also known as Roanoke Area Ministry, is a non-profit organization that serves the Roanoke Valley by providing a safe shelter for the homeless, a nutritious lunch, and emergency financial aid to those in need. The RAM house opens its doors to those in need 365 days a year from 8:00am to 4:00pm
Some of the participants helped to prepare and serve lunch, while other participants assisted with administrative tasks. Many of the participants said they plan on volunteering more within their local communities after such a positive and rewarding experience.
