The School of Social Work at VCU has launched a community service initiative – Community Reach Out — that engages its faculty, staff, students and alumni to work together in service to the community. The goal is to add a new School-wide dimension to its long-standing commitment to social and economic justice, and helping individuals and families in need
This Spring, the focus of Community Reach Out will be to those who have most acutely been experiencing the effects of the economic crisis. We will be initiating a new project each month of the Spring semester that relates to this focus.
The first project was a clothing drive for unemployed women and men who need business attire for job interviews, and newly employed adults who are in need of work-related clothing. The clothing was collected, organized and donated to Goodwill of Central Virginia’s job placement services, Freedom House, and TDC- Culture of Work Academy.
