It is becoming a Lumen tradition to volunteer at the Dickens of a Christmas Ripon community event. Last year, we had our own booth, where we served hot chocolate, apple cider and holiday cookies. In addition, we set up a craft table where kids could make an ornament for their tree. This year, we teamed up with J’s BBQ to serve a delicious sweet treat. It is a great opportunity for students to be active contributers within their community. It is part of our mission and vision in Lumen and a value that we hope will instill a life long passion in students for volunteering and serving others wherever life leads them.
