12:40 p.m., March 4, 2014--Lori’s Hands, a non-profit organization at the University of Delaware dedicated to providing undergraduates with community health service learning opportunities, is recruiting new student leaders for the 2014 fall semester. These students will gain experience leading a student organization on campus as well as experience in the non-profit sector. 

Lori’s Hands connects college students with community members diagnosed with chronic illnesses. The students make home visits to assist patients with cleaning, yard work, grocery shopping and other household chores. The organization also has plans to replicate the UD model on other college campuses.

Finkel to speak

David Finkel, the Pulitzer-Prize winning author of "Thank You for Your Service," will visit UD to discuss his book with freshmen as part of the 2014 First Year Common Reader Program.

End the silence

More than 300 members of the UD community, including students, faculty, staff and alumni, gathered on the steps of Memorial Hall and the nearby North Green on Sept. 19 to voice their concerns regarding sexual harassment and assault.

Lori's Hands is looking for organized students with strong written and oral communication skills. Students should be interested in community health and service learning. Working under the supervision of Lori’s Hands board members, these students will be responsible for patient and volunteer recruitment, volunteer training, marketing, fundraising, and other tasks.

Interested students should visit the website and download the position descriptions and applications on the “volunteer” tab.
