Sara Sawinski’s first taste of philanthropy came as a child when her family volunteered with a church ministry to help homeless families. Since then, her passion for service has only grown.
The sociology major has used her time at Alma College to figure out which areas of service she likes most, and she says she has found no shortage of opportunities to help others.
“I volunteered at a women’s shelter, which really confirmed my desire to go into social work,” she says.
