HUG

Helping Unite Generations

HUG establishes relationships with older members of the community. HUG visits local retirement homes weekly with volunteers to build inter-generational relationships through activities with residents such as crafts, community dances and playing games. HUG coordinates several special programs throughout the semester to pair service groups and classes at KU to connect with older members of the community.

Current opportunities include volunteering with Senior Wheels, Meadowlark Estates, Neuvant House, Pioneer Ridge, and a Friendly Visitors Program through Catholic Charities.
