Fall Service Day Takes Place October 16
Walla Walla University students have the opportunity to work in the local community by participating in Fall Service Day from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m on Wednesday, Oct. 16. CommUnity credit, a free t-shirt, free breakfast and free lunch are provided for those who participate.
Beginning at 8 a.m., the church staff will serve a free breakfast for Service Day participants in the Canaday Technology Center Bowl (grass area behind the church). This breakfast will be followed by a short worship service, with departure from campus around 9 a.m. Service Day participants will return to campus around 1 p.m. for a free lunch at the same location.
Service projects are available for sign-up on the WWU website at www.wallawalla.edu/serviceday. These projects are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Once a project is full, it will disappear from the website. If all the online signup projects are filled, students are still welcome to come to the meeting location and join an existing project.
Projects are scheduled at Pikes Peak, Davis School, YMCA, Country Estates, Children’s Museum, Regency at the Park, Children’s Home Society, Volunteer Chore Services, Blue Mountain Humane Society, and assisting elderly or disabled residents with yard work.
Students will need to provide their own transportation or make transportation arrangements with their group. If a group doesn’t have any transportation, contact Ellie Veverka at 527-2102.
Classes regularly scheduled after 2 p.m. will meet. All classes prior to 2 p.m. will not meet.
