Helping Hands

The University of Alabama in Huntsville is a community of “Volunteer Chargers” students, faculty, and staff members who give back to the campus and the Huntsville community on a weekly basis. Annually, the Office of Student Life hosts “Helping Hands for Huntsville” event during the fall Week of Welcome and “Can Creations” during Homecoming week.
