Friday photo: Student volunteers from Texas A&M University revitalize Beaumont campus

This month, nearly 50 student volunteers from Texas A&M Fish Aides stopped by the Buckner campus in Beaumont to work on some service projects. The group was traveling to New Orleans and decided they wanted to do some service projects along the way.

“I was amazed at the mission and scope of Buckner as so many children are provided a home and safe haven there,” said Daniel Hulse, assistant director of the Fish Aides. “We had such a fun time serving and were so glad our time was used so effectively in positively impacting a phenomenal organization.”

In just a few hours, the students revitalized the campus by organizing storage units, cataloging donations, cleaned the campus, removed Christmas décor and helped with maintenance.

“I was truly impressed with them,” said Kelly Gerlach, Buckner ministry engagement coordinator for Southeast Texas. “Each student displayed great leadership qualities and the heart of a servant. It was such a pleasure to work with them.”
