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 of Huntsville" in the fall, co-sponsors "The Big Event" in the spring, and provides additional service learning opportunities during Homecoming Week.
