Fontbonne Day

Fontbonne Day was last Friday. It occurs one day a year when all of Fontbonne breaks up into groups and goes into various locations to do volunteer work. In the past I did not have a group to go with. This year however, I got inducted into ODK. It is the national honor society for students who are in the top third in their class. Anyway, I got the chance to go with this group this year. Our group when to a local First Baptist Church to do gardening. Me and my friends took out weeds and placed mulch in the garden. Some other people painted the shed. We were rewarded with a delicious lunch afterwards! We had hot dogs, chips, and various desserts. At the end, there was fried chicken! I am glad I participated in this experience!

Fontbonne University is a great place to indulge in many different volunteer efforts and campus activities. Although it is my senior year here at the school, I have taken the opportunity to become involved in as many things as possible. Fontbonne Day is a day of service where students, faculty, and outside volunteers come together to serve people of a community who are less fortunate than them. I was team captain that led a service group at a local domestic abuse shelter. There we prepped and cleaned a building that is being remodeled into a transitional housing facility for victims of domestic abuse and their children. Having the opportunity to be involved in something bigger than myself is always a great feeling, especially when the work being done will benefit people who really need it.

After speaking with the director of Lydia House, I told her that I would definitely be coming back to volunteer my time with the organization. Not only does volunteer work give you different life experiences, it also gives you the opportunity to meet wonderful people and hear their heartfelt stories.

As you all know, last week we had our annual Fontbonne Day, a day where campus shuts down and faculty, students, and staff go out into the community and serve. This year I had the opportunity to go out to Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT)  in Wildwood, Missouri with Fontbonne’s Student Association of Family and Consumer Sciences. EAT provides equine, or horse, therapy to people with developmental and/or physical disabilities. EAT has many horses, a few donkeys, and even some cats running around. Our main job for the day was to help clean, which included not only helping to clean and organize the buildings and property, but also the horses! Since it is finally starting to warm up, it was important to give the horses baths after a long winter. Cleaning a horse is a lot more difficult than I thought it would be, but they were all so sweet and gentle, so that made it easier! Once we cleaned the horses we gave them “manicures” or painted their hoofs with a protective coat to help protect them from the weather and land. This was definitely a new and unique experience for me, and I am so happy that I got to experience EAT and meet all the wonderful horses during my time volunteering! What did you do for Fontbonne Day?

Hi everyone,

Last Friday was our University Big Day!!! Did anyone join and volunteer in one of the activities? I really had a wonderful time spending my day with my other friends at an elementary school to help their school do some gardening on their front lawn and some painting for the school to hang along the hallway. The weather was nice and this was my first time doing some planting. I ‘m glad that we were able to show the young children there to let them know what we are doing and show them what the plants are and how they will grow big later! The kids were lovely and the teachers and principal were appreciated of what we were doing there.

I am very impressed that our University which would spend a day to encourage students to go out to serve other communities in need. Compared to my previous undergraduate university, I’ve never experienced that before. So, I really appreciate how Fontbonne treasures and encourages people.
