Description

The Music and Human Services minor, students worked with Gemenschaft House (a facility for formerly incarcerated men adjusting to life outside of prison), Ashbury Church, Virginia Mennonite Retirement Center (VMRC) (specifically the low-income housing wing) and the ARC of Harrisonburg (working with those who are developmentally and intellectually challenged). Students teamed with Ashbury Church to fundraise in order to purchase a set of handbells for ARC. They then taught the ARC participants how to play and lead them in their first concert.
