Residents spend thousands of hours every year giving their time and talents both within Asbury and to countless organizations in the surrounding area. Opportunities include: English as a Second Language tutoring, heading resident governance councils, getting involved with the Village Life newspaper or on-campus TV station staff and helping organize and provide lectures for the Keese School of Continuing Education to name just a few. Each year, the Keese School provides scholarships for young adults who work in Asbury's dining rooms. One resident even created his own national award-winning community service project, the Gaithersburg Beloved Community Initiative. There are few limits. Residents of Wilson Health Care Center join other volunteers every week in making more than a hundred peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches for Manna Food Center. In 2012, the Asbury Guild marked its 25th year hosting Elves Day, when residents and associates come together to create and deliver gift baskets to every resident of Kindley Assisted Living and the Wilson Health Care Center.
In 2013, Asbury Methodist Village residents logged more than 300,000 volunteer hours on Asbury's campus alone. Do you enjoy giving back? Are you looking for more opportunties to do so? Asbury Methodist Village is a place where you'll meet plenty of like-minded individuals.
