New Buffalo Institute Hosts First Mission Monday

On Monday, February 12, the New Buffalo Institute hosted its first Mission Mondays event of the semester!

Mission Mondays allow students the opportunity to create a DIY volunteer project that will benefit a local community partner. This past Monday, students created Valentine’s Day cards and decorated bags that they then packed with hygiene products. The hygiene bags will be donated to Compass House, an emergency shelter and resource center for displaced youth.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the Commuter Lounge to decorate bags and create cards that offer words of affirmation and encouragement to the youth at Compass House!
