Nonprofit organizations across the country are among many who feel the overwhelming impact of COVID-19. But last fall, when several Tuscaloosa nonprofits needed help like never before, the University of Alabama’s student-led organization Serving Bama found a way to safely continue vital, in-person volunteer services, and it continues doing so today.
“We knew that now more than ever, the Tuscaloosa community needed our support,” said Chloe Keck, a senior biology major who is team leader for Serving Bama. “It was important for us to find a way to continue offering services to our community partners, to be consistent and hands-on in the community, while being cognizant of the pandemic and the precautions we needed to take to keep everyone safe.”
Serving Bama is one of UA’s Center for Service and Leadership’s community action teams. Through Keck’s leadership, and with the help of 23 assistant team leaders, Serving Bama meets a variety of needs for 11 Tuscaloosa nonprofits where nearly 130 UA students volunteer weekly.
