In the spring term, we sponsor and volunteer for a Kids' Night with One Child Center for Autism. Kids' Night is a scheduled evening of respite care designed to give parents and caregivers of children with special needs qualified child-care.
In the fall semester, we sponsor the United Way Mobile Food truck on the third Thursday of October, providng the weekly operating costs for the truck and helping to distribute food to the poor, homeless, and needy.
Over the past six years, we have raised money and provide scholarships students at Holy Cross Anglican School in San Matteo, Belize. In 2016 we gave $4,500 to provide full scholarships for two high school students and five primary school students.
At the beginning of the spring semester, we help to host the Commission on Faith Ministry shelter week at Bruton Parish by cooking dinner and preparing lunch for the homeless. This is a meaningful opportunity to eat with and learn from the homeless.
Throughout the year we encourage our students to participate in The Campus Kitchens Project through the Office of Community Engagement at W&M, an affiliate organization that seeks to meet the nutritional and hunger needs of Williamsburg.
On odd years, we sponsor a domestic service trip during spring break. In 2015 our group went to Winston Salem and volunteered on projects designed by a Canterbury alumna, Caitlyn Darnell, who was then serving in the Episcopal Service Corps. These trips vary is size, mission, and scope depending on the year and the opportunities available. In 2017 we may return to North Carolina or connect with some of the opportunities designed by the Office of Community Engagement at W&M.
