UIW’s community service event Meet the Mission is about to celebrate its eleventh year of serving underserved organizations and members in the San Antonio community this September. The initiative, under the leadership of the Office of Mission and Ministry, actively teaches students about the “service” portion of our Mission through action and practice.
In 2015, UIW sent 300 students to provide 1,500 hours of community service to 28 organizations in the San Antonio community. Students and faculty served in a variety of areas including assisting the elderly and refugees living in our city as well as building gardens and refurbished playgrounds in the community.
This year, Meet the Mission is Friday, Sept. 16, and starts in the McDermott Convocation Center. Not only is this event a great way to earn community service hours and help organizations in the San Antonio community, but it is also a great way to meet new friends that you might have not met in other ways. For the past 11 years, Meet the Mission has bonded hundreds of students together in our UIW family through the act of service.
