Owens Has Heart

Krista Kiessling, Director, Service Learning organized a service learning project at the Learning Center at the Source; Owens Has Heart. Mr. Cleveland Henderson and Mrs. Caryn Tilly-Pflager, adjunct instructors at the Learning Center at the Source added this project to the class assignment as a service-learning experience. The service-learning project offers students an opportunity to participate in service learning while helping fellow students. Students were asked to self-identify or identify someone in one of their classes who is in need of food or clothing. The project asked student to donating backpack at the Learning Center at the Source. Once the backpack collection was over, Mrs. Kiessling packed the backpacks with three to five days of food. The identified student(s) were instructed on how they would receive a backpack. Krista decided backpacks would be a discreetly way to help Owens students.
