    In January 2011, students and employees at Remington College - Fort Worth Campus accepted a pledge to offer at least one thousand hours of volunteer service for the month.

    The Campus exceeded its goal at the end of January, with a total of 1,028 volunteer hours contributed for the month. Here are a few of the services offered as part of this Campus-wide volunteer effort:

    Chiffon Geiger, a Medical Billing and Coding student, provided transportation to single mothers taking refuge in a woman's shelter, "It just feels good to help someone who really needs it," Chiffon said.

    A fellow Medical Billing and Coding student, Ambyr Farrow, volunteered her time bagging groceries at the Dallas Food Pantry and served dinner for the homeless at the Salvation Army's Fort Worth Shelter. Ambyr said, "I love giving back, and I can see that what I do really makes a difference!"

    Chantel Jones, an employee in Career Services, chose to dedicate Martin Luther King, Jr., Day (January 17) to giving back to her community. Chantel offered photography services and served as a sponsor for the "Lift Up Your Praise - Super Kids Conference" at the Palace Arts Center in Grapevine, Texas. "I enjoyed capturing uplifting photos of the children expressing themselves through their spiritual gifts," said Chantel.

    Campus President Gregg Falcon commented, "This is a continuous effort that we hope will not only inspire others to volunteer but also raise awareness of the needs in our community."
