The HERO (Higher Education Reaching Out) Project was created by the Residence Services Department at the University of Windsor. It is a means for residence staff and students to give back to the greater community in a way that is meaningful, impactful and educational.
In past years, the HERO Project has taken students to the Dominican Republic to help build houses for those in need. In addition, two trips have been made to New Orleans to help communities rebuild from the devastation Hurricane Katrina left behind. Last year, we felt the greatest need was in our own community after it was announced that 3 of the 5 local food banks would have to close due to a significant reduction in donations and supplies.
The idea behind HERO is to provide a means for everyday people to give back. It doesn't take much to have an impact on the world around you - whether it be to an individual or a whole community. All it takes is someone with the passion and drive to want to make a difference - and then follow through with the effort.
Will YOU be someone's HERO?
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us."
- Marianne Williamson
