Unity with Our Community – Rescheduled

On Friday, March 15th, Hilbert College students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in our rescheduled Unity with Our Community event, a service day devoted to carrying on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in our community. This day is an opportunity for us at Hilbert to connect with the work Dr. King advocated for and to understand the importance of taking action to promote equality, justice, respect, and compassion.

Current community partners for the day include:

716 MinistriesA community development organization that stabilizes neighborhoods by restoring neglected housing stock. The organization sells these rehabilitated homes at a low cost, to community members and first-time homebuyers, largely thanks to the faithful volunteers that serve with the agency.

Compass HouseProvides runaway, homeless, and street youth with safe shelter and services. Compass House stands as one of the nation’s oldest shelter and service providers for youth of all gender identities, offering shelter, counseling, and so much more.

Food Bank of WNYThe primary hunger-relief organization in Western New York. The agency obtains nutritious food and distributes support to our community members throughout Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Niagara Counties.

Little Portion Friary: A volunteer-run organization that brings forth the mission of the Catholic Church to provide food for the hungry, clothing for the undressed, and shelter for the homeless.

Salvation Army in Buffalo: Provides a variety of programs and services that annually benefit over 30,000 economically disadvantaged people. The Salvation Army is an integral part of the local human service network, providing housing, clothing, nutritional, social, and spiritual assistance through a wide range of separate but interrelated programs and services.

S.S. Columba Brigid: A neighborhood, multicultural Catholic church where all are welcome.

Veterans One-Stop Center of WNY, Inc.: a nonprofit corporation offering U.S. Veterans and their families the convenience of a one-stop, barrier-free location in which to access a holistic range of social and health services in the comfort of a “home base” environment that is always welcoming, affirming and responsive to their needs.

You’re Invited to the Hawk Radio Legacy Event

Hawk Radio is throwing a party – and everyone’s invited! Join the Hawk Radio crew and special alumni guests for the Hawk Radio Legacy Party in the lower level of the Campus Center on Thursday, November 29th from 7:00-10:00 PM.

The party will feature a special LIVE broadcast with former on-air personalities, free food, a photo booth for all your Instagram-worthy moments, and games. Oh, and did we mention free food?

While you’re feeling the music at the party, you can also feel good about attending the event by donating much needed items to Compass House, a local organization near and dear to Hilbert’s heart. Hawk Radio will be collecting donations of personal items throughout the event to benefit this Western New York based not-for-profit, which provides young men and women shelter, counseling, and other services. While any donation is appreciated, a complete wish list of items can be found on the Compass House Website.

If you can’t make it to the celebration in person, you can prevent FOMO by listening in to the special live broadcast on Hawk Radio from any web browser (on any computer or mobile device) at http://hawkradio.hilbert.edu.
