The Hispanic Student Association and OCU place a strong emphasis on service and volunteering, she said.
Many of the group's members are also Clara Luper Scholars, a scholarship program that includes a service component, Ramirez said.
So, most of the students are involved in several volunteering events throughout the year.
“This is definitely one of our favorites,” she said.
Karina Lopez, a sophomore, said she didn't know much about Ronald McDonald House before she began volunteering with the organization. She said she's glad to have the opportunity to make a hot meal for families who are away from home during Thanksgiving.
Besides, Lopez said, she enjoys cooking.
“Making breakfast is always fun,” she said.
