GivingWorks: 2018 Service Event 

Join WellWorks on April 22, 2018, as we celebrate Athens Beautification Day.

GivingWorks, a service effort housed within Ohio University’s WellWorks program, is partnering with Women for Recovery and Chrysalis Farm to facilitate a service site at Serenity Grove, a women’s recovery facility in Athens, during Athens Beautification Day on April 22. The service event has been specially created to offer our WellWorks members and student employees with a unique opportunity to connect service with their own wellness journeys and the wellness journeys of the residents of Serenity Grove. 

On this date, volunteers will assist Chrysalis Farm with the building, filling and mulching of raised beds on the Serenity Grove grounds. The grounds, which will undergo a multi-phase renovation, will be incorporated in the wellness journeys of the residents.

Throughout their shifts, volunteers will be encouraged to take movement breaks and will be given opportunities to learn more about the important role community plays in the healing process, particularly at Serenity Grove.
