Operation Blessing International teamed up recently with Regent University in order to reach out and serve the needy in the Virginia Beach, Va., community.

Regent University President Dr. Carlos Campo and the charity organization arranged two different service projects for the students.

At Operation Blessing's warehouse in Chesapeake, Va., students cleaned up equipment used in disaster situation, painted and did other odd jobs around the facility.

In a second project, students worked with Operation Blessing's partner, the New Life Christian Center. The center gives out groceries to an estimated 100 people per a month.

"Dr. Campo has been emphasizing volunteer service with the Regent student body," said Jody Herrington, U.S. director of disaster relief for OBI. "The plan is to have additional service days throughout the year for Regent students to volunteer with us in an effort to help create that culture of service."

Students helped pack and distribute groceries and also prepared and served meals to community residents.
