    Make Good

    For Mac Garrett ’12, volunteering at Hamline takes all forms -- from raking leaves for the local elderly to organizing a benefit concert for more than 100 people. Garrett is president of STOVE: Students Together Organizing Volunteer Events, a group of students who do just that. “It’s cool to connect with the community,” says Garrett. “We have a really talented group and it’s fulfilling to volunteer. It’s also a good resume-builder.”

    The group organizes two volunteer projects per month such as book or food drives, in addition to its larger, annual events, including 30-Hour Famine and Benefit Concert and a sock hop to raise money for homelessness.

    Organizing such events is no small feat. Garrett gave us a by-the-numbers account of what it takes to put on the 30-Hour Famine and Benefit Concert:

    Weeks in planning: 6-8
    People who fasted: 30
    Combined total hours fasted: 900
    Hours volunteered, organizing food items: 45
    Bands: 9
    Hours of music played: 4
    People who attended: 150
    Cost of a ticket: Free for Pipers, $3 for non-Hamline students
    Money donated: $250
