SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — Soldiers assigned to Delta Company, 29th Engineer Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, spent a portion of their recent off time helping the community at the Institute for Human Services, Inc. Social Services Agency Meals Program in Honolulu.

IHS is a comprehensive social services agency working to prevent and end homelessness in Hawaii. Their mission is to provide respite for those who are unsheltered and solutions that transform the lives of local homeless and at-risk people.

Soldiers arrived at the IHS Women and Family Shelter to serve breakfast to its guests.   The volunteers served a hot meal to the less fortunate and interacted with them during their visit.

“The reason I volunteer is to make someone’s day better by giving them something that they wouldn’t normally have access to, said SPC Deonte Jackson, Human Intelligence Specialist, 29th Engineer Battalion.

Overall, eleven Soldiers participated in serving food to those less fortunate at IHS that morning.

“Just seeing the smiles on the people’s faces while they’re receiving a hot meal can really make your day,” said Jackson.

The platoon plans to continue to provide their services by volunteering at IHS in the future and encourage other Soldiers in the Brigade to help out alongside them.
