On Nov. 30 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., the UOS including the UOS Social Welfare Center and the UOS Student Council held a community service event called ‘Love and Share.’ This was a part of volunteer work that the UOS has been involved in since 2009. Fundraising for ‘Love and Share’ took place from Nov. 15 to 28. The community work took place around Sinnae 10 complex Sinnae Apt, located in Jungnang-gu and the participants helped 1,432 households. This community service event was created with the aim of helping and supporting our neighbors who face social and economic scarcity.
About 200 participants, including the UOS president, staff, students and local residents, participated. As well as making kimchi with local residents, UOS volunteers used a special laundry car, provided by the No Won and Jungnang Red Cross Volunteer Corps of Korean Red Cross, to wash the blankets of those who have trouble getting around, such as the elders who live alone and the disabled.
