Students entering sixth to 12th grade can learn the importance of community service and earn volunteer hours by participating in UA Little Rock Benton Campus’s Day of Service on Tuesday, June 26.
Students will have a variety of community service projects to choose from, including assisting the Saline County Humane Society in preparing supplies and essentials for shelter animals and baking goods for police officers and firefighters. The students also will create a mural to be donated to Habitat for Humanity as well as write to servicemen and women stationed overseas.
“Students will also network with one another, meet with representatives from our local community partners to learn the importance of giving back, and create their own checklist of random acts of kindness that can be spread through Saline County and surrounding areas,” said Angela Paladino, academic advisor and program coordinator at the Benton Campus. “This is a perfect day project for any student who is in need of volunteer hours for extracurricular activities or scholarships.”
The Day of Service class will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and costs $25, which includes breakfast, lunch, and a T-shirt.
