Students from LSC-Montgomery's Human Services Student Organization hope to spread some holiday cheer with the more than 300 toys they collected for Children's Safe Harbor, a non-profit agency in Conroe that serves children who are victims of abuse and neglect.
Students in Lone Star College-Montgomery’s Human Services Student Organization collected more than 300 children’s toys and donated them to Children’s Safe Harbor in Conroe.
Children’s Safe Harbor is a non-profit social service agency that provides counseling and medical services to children who have been the victims of abuse and neglect. The toys will be distributed to children within the program this holiday season.
Each semester, the Human Services Student Organization collects items for a local non-profit agency to serve the local community and to allow students to learn more about working in the human services field after graduation. It’s a student-led organization within LSC-Montgomery’s human services program, which prepare students to serve others with emotional, behavioral, vocational, and substance-abuse problems.
Many of the program’s graduates go on to careers with government or state-funded agencies, local non-profit agencies, residential treatment facilities and hospitals, and in private offices or agencies.
