Vincentian Service Day 2013

CaptureThis week’s guest blogger is Krystal Baisden. She is a sophomore double majoring in Intercultural Communication and Peace, Justice and Conflict Studies. Krystal is heavily involved on campus! She serves in leadership positions in all organizations she’s in which are: Invisible Children DePaul Branch, Global Brigades, W.O.R.C, Young Life and DemonTHON.

This Saturday, May 4th was DePaul’s Annual large campus service event, Vincentian Service Day. One of the organizations I am in, Young Life, decided it would be fun to give up our time and volunteer as a group at one of the sites offered. The site we volunteered at was the Alexian Brothers Bonaventure House off of the Belmont red line stop. At the Alexian Brothers Bonaventure House, we helped plant many flowers and vegetables in their garden. We also cleaned up the lawn. It was really nice to see that we were able to help them beautify their garden and make it feel more homey for them.

 Vincentian Service Day is  special because as a college community we are upholding what our school was founded upon. I think it is important for everyone at DePaul University to uphold the Vincentian Values in their lives. This is why DePaul a unique and beautiful school because of these values. I am already looking forward to next year’s Vincentian Service where I am planning to volunteer at for the third year.
