How Can We Best Serve, which is about to enter its third year, seeks to align programming with one of its six key themes: Access to education, expectations and identity, resiliency, economic disparities, racial inequality/cultural diversity, and youth empowerment. HCWBS works with the University's Book-in-Common (BinC) program which selects a service-related book for all freshmen to read and asks students to integrate the themes of the book into their student experience. This year's BinC was The Other Wes Moore by youth advocate Wes Moore. HCWBS also hosts an annual How Can We Best Serve Conference.
Project Sunshine is an organization that connects volunteers to the families of children facing medical problems. Since being brought to the U of L campus by U of L student Julia Hunter, Project Sunshine has grown as a student initiative to help children return to a sense of normalcy while in the pediatric healthcare environment. Across the country, Project Sunshine helps over 60,000 children annually. The student chapter of Project Sunshine hosts a bake sale on campus each year to raise awareness and money for the cause.
