DASH seeks to address the problems of hunger and poverty by connecting UNLV students and people experiencing homelessness through the services provided at the Las Vegas Rescue Mission.
By making, packing, and delivering lunches, we hope to give students a glimpse of the plight of these disenfranchised populations and to give them a way to do something about it.
After the program, we hope participants will take their involvement to the next level by seeking other ways to do service with those experiencing homelessness.
Volunteers will be required to wear a mask at all times.
Location: 1st Floor Eating Bar in the Student Union
2:15-3:45 PM: Make sandwiches and pack lunches on-campus

**Transportation will be provided for a limited number of students. Carpooling will be arranged if needed.
Volunteers will be given 1.5 hours for the sandwich shift, 2.5 hours for the delivery shift -- total of 4 hours if participated in both.
