Students and staff from the University of Guam handed out meals to homeless families on Friday in front of the Guam Congress Building.

The event was a community service project of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, assisted by the Political Science Student Association, the UOG Sociology Club, Mañe’lon Marianas, and the UOG student chapter of the United Nations Association. The team handed out spaghetti meals, toiletries, snack bags, and feminine hygiene products donated by the Bureau of Women’s Affairs.

“One lesson we want to impress upon the students is that when they see someone in need, we do something to help — it may not be feeding the homeless, but something toward helping others get back on their feet,” said Sharleen Santos-Bamba, associate dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.
