Waubonsee Students Plan Day of Service

Waubonsee Community College students will spend Saturday, April 16 volunteering at seven sites throughout the area for their Day of Service.

Organizers say 125 students will do service projects with Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois, Aurora Salvation Army, Kendall County Food Pantry, Aurora Humane Society/Fox Valley United Way, Rebuilding Together Aurora, Kane County Forest Preserve and Mutual Ground in Aurora. Throughout the day, students will assist in activities such as raking, weeding, moving branches, or assisting with the other needs of the service organizations involved.

“This is the largest Day of Service that we have ever hosted, thanks to our partnership with the Gustafson Scholarship program, said Meg Junk, Waubonsee Student Life Specialist. “We are excited to be able to partner with seven different organizations and make a larger impact.”

Junk said this is the third year that Waubonsee has hosted Day of Service, which began in Spring of 2014 and has been done once per semester since its inception.
