My name is Lauren Finnigan and I am a student at Cal Poly State University, I am majoring in journalism and this blog is part of my assignment for an intro to web-based journalism class. This summer I spent two weeks in Honduras doing some volunteer work, which included some hard labor as well as spending time at a school and even visiting an orphanage. Honduras holds a special place in my heart and has opened my eyes to the opportunities to help those around us. I hope that this blog allows me to share what I have learned about volunteer work in SLO as well as sharing other ways people can get involved in their communities. I wanted to learn how I can get more involved not only on the Cal Poly campus, but in the community as well.
