From a soup kitchen to an archeological dig, Commerce students volunteered their time and talents in the Kingston area on March 18. They were participating in the Commerce Society’s “Commerce Has Heart” program that gives students the opportunity to give back to the local community by volunteering at charities and not-for-profit organizations throughout the city.

In addition to learning about how these organizations operate, the students rolled up their sleeves to help by preparing and serving meals for those in need at Martha’s Table, washing artifacts and setting up displays at the Cataraqui Archeological Research Foundation, and lending a hand at The Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity and The Boys and Girls Club of Kingston.
