Moravian College Students Volunteer at Camp Fowler for Hertiage Day
On September 21st, Moravian College hosted its second annual Heritage Day. On this day hundreds of Moravian College students and faculty come together to celebrate Moravian tradition and to help their community. After coming together at Johnston Hall, they were sent out to different service locations including local schools and other parts of the Bethlehem community. Last year on Heritage Day, the students of Moravian College contributed to 2,390 hours of service.
This year, 36 students and faculty volunteered at Camp Fowler, Valley Youth House’s therapeutic, challenge-based adventure camp, located in Orefield PA. Camp Fowler serves youth ages 11 and up and specializes in: Child welfare youth (in and out of care), Foster care, Independent Living/Chafee youth, Respite care, Sibling groups, Family groups, LGBTQ+ youth and Juvenile probation youth. The Moravian students spent spend the day volunteering at the camp, working on recycling, lawn maintenance, garden maintenance, kitchen clean-up, and more! In total, they logged a total of 72 hours of work at Camp Fowler, which definitely was a big help for our staff! Thanks, Moravian! Go Greyhounds!
