Providing Hope and Opportunity!
On Friday, February 24th, fourteen students from the OSU TRIO program volunteered their time as a part of their National TRIO Day – a time set aside for community service! The TRIO Student Support Services program at OSU-Cascades provides opportunities for academic growth and development, assists students with basic college requirements, and serves to motivate students toward the successful completion of their post-secondary education.
We started the day with a brief presentation of MountainStar’s vision, mission and values and a tour of Deschutes Children Foundation Bend site to highlight our non-profit collaboration. The rest of the morning was spent in the 2’s classroom working on various projects for MountainStar’s annual golf fundraising event, Birdies 4 Babies, to be held on Sunday, August 13th at Broken Top Club & Tetherow.
It was wonderful to witness the diversity and engagement of this next generation towards philanthropic work! It was inspiring to see their willingness to devote time and talents towards MountainStar’s work and their joy was contagious in the process. It gives one hope that our community, and world at large, are in great hands.
We are incredibly thankful for OSU TRIO students for sharing their National TRIO Day with us at MountainStar and hope for many more opportunities to partner in the future!
