As in the story of the lion and the mouse, acts of charity and kindness often have a lifelong impact on both the recipient and the giver. In this issue of FOCUS, we look at volunteerism at Boise State and highlight the generosity and compassion of some members of the Boise State community- including stories about two groups of Boise State students who traveled to Latin America, providing assistance to a Mexican orphanage and an El Salvador hospital.
