Previously, we were the LYM Campus crew. However, we are now Helping Hands. We are still prideful in our volunteer work, but we wanted to create a club that was open to more people and volunteer opportunities! We strive to give our members lots of options for volunteer hours, and bonding events. We specifically work to help families within the Allendale and Grand Rapids communities. Please reach out if this sounds like the club for you :)

A group dedicated to promoting the wellbeing of students both physically and mentally. The goal is to teach students techniques to relieve stress through various activities. Each activity will provide a positive experience and a break from the usual routine of school. Activities may include vision boards to break down people's goals for the year. Also, therapy dog visits, a yoga instructor, stress coloring books, make your own stress balls, health expert talks, a healthy snack picnic, and more. overall, we want it to be simple and fun. It is also an opportunity for students to form like-minded connections with people who share a passion for prioritizing their mental health. We intend it to be a truly enjoyable experience as well as an important reminder for students to be attentive towards their mental health during their college years and beyond.

The Campus Cleanup Crew is an organization devoted to cleaning the litter off campus to make a
difference in the environment and ecosystems surrounding Grand Valley. Our focus is to organize
campus cleanup events that remove waste from the Allendale campus's ravines and along the river (in
addition to any other areas in our community that require attention) to ensure an environment free of
debris. Additionally we aspire to educate members of campus about the detrimental effects of pollution through informational posters and during our meetings. We provide our members with the opportunity to volunteer in Campus cleanup events and spread awareness about litter and pollution throughout campus while creating a social space in which environmentally-conscious students can make a difference in the GV community.
