Hearts Everywhere Reaching Out, a new organization on campus, has a mission to help children between 6 to 18 infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
The organization serves kids living in the Atlanta, Augusta, Albany, Macon and Athens areas.
H.E.R.O also offers support for children through enriching programs, unforgettable experiences, and connections with the community.
This inspiring organization also offers support through mentoring relationships, life skills development, recreational activities and life exposure with a variety of opportunities and experiences.
H.E.R.O was founded in 2003 by two University of Georgia graduates each with experience in working with children dealing with HIV/AIDS.
Erica McCoy, a junior at VSU, was enthralled by the organization and decided that it would be a great idea to bring it to the attention of students of VSU.
She encourages students to come to the next organization meeting on Thurs, Feb. 2 at 7 p.m. in the Student Union Meeting Room 2.
HE.R.O. also participates in Blazer Buddies, a program that pairs a student up with a child from the Boys & Girls Club from Heart to Heart. The pair then goes to the men’s basketball game on Feb. 11 at 8 p.m.
If interested, please attend the meeting on Feb. 2
