Generation HU - April: A Month of Service

A Month of Service

Bisons for Christ Nationwide

Generation HU consists of three parts:  Networking, Serving and Giving.  Our theme for the month of April is SERVING.  We want to help you continue to have the heart and mindset of service you learned while at Harding, even after graduation.  You were able to participate in Bisons for Christ, a campus-wide day of service, while you were a student here, and we want that kind of action to remain a part of your life.  We hope to have young alumni everywhere participating in Bisons for Christ Nationwide.

There are so many different ways to help those in your community and show the light of Christ to those around you. Anything from:

  • Raking leaves
  • Cleaning up trash
  • Organizing something with your church group
  • Helping a family move in/out
  • Visiting a nursing home
  • Donating clothes to Goodwill
  • Visit your local children’s hospital
  • Consider writing an encouraging note
  • Taking someone to lunch

If you would like to participate and lead a group service activity in your area, please email generationhu@harding.edu your name and contact information, what you are doing and where you are so we can direct others in your area to join your group.

Specific projects:

Arkansas Children’s Hospital

We encourage you to do something as easy as write a card to a patient at ACH or at your local hospital.

Guidelines for cards:  ACH asks that cards be written gender neutral. They can have seasonal messages such as Happy Holidays, Happy Winter, Happy Valentine’s Day or Happy Spring. ACH asks that the cards not include statements such as “I hope you go home soon,” “I hope you get well soon” or “I will be praying for you.” They can include messages like “I’m thinking about you”or “I hope you have a good day.” Please do not sign the cards for their privacy and safety.

A great way to make this a success is to get a group of your friends, co-workers or a church group to write cards. The more the better! Please send them all together to:
