On June 15, 2015 at the annual Volunteer Recognition Banquet, the Roanoke chapter of the American Red Cross presented Jefferson College of Health Sciences with the Partner Award in recognition of the service provided by the students and college during this academic year.

Jefferson students in the Service Learning in Community Health I & II courses (HSC 490 & HSC 491) will have contributed over 600 hours of service to the Red Cross (August 2014-July 2015). Not only do students volunteer at the Roanoke American Red Cross, but students are/have also contributed service hours in the Lynchburg, Patrick County, and Fredricksburg Red Cross offices. In May, we partnered with the Red Cross for The Pillowcase Project and are planning to continue our work with them on this project during the next academic year.  Kelly Berry (Health Sciences graduate, May 2015) received a Certificate of Appreciation for Disasters Services/General Volunteer last night too.

Students not volunteering at the Red Cross are working with other community organizations. In total by the end of this academic year (August 2014-August 2015), 21 students in the Service Learning courses will have contributed over 1,300 hours of community service!
