Kindness is the Greatest Wisdom

In the Valparaiso Club’s Gamesroom, you can find volunteer Dominic Snemis sitting at a game table with three, four, and sometimes five Club members crowded around him. What are they doing? Playing simple – yet fun board games that help youth with their cognitive abilities.

“I like spending time with the Club members. Even though I am providing volunteer time, I am actually getting a lot more from the Club kids. I think I am learning as much from them as they are from me.” Dominic is a student at Purdue University who visits the Valparaiso Club twice a week during the summer months. For his pharmacy application, service hours are required. “When I received the opportunity to choose which organization I could volunteer, I wanted to give back to the same Club where I started playing sports.”
