University Celebrates Community Service Day

University Celebrates Community Service DayHundreds of volunteers from University Campus spent Saturday morning working at local nonprofit agencies in observance of Community Service Day. This volunteer service opportunity is offered during both the fall and spring semesters. This year, the fall session was scheduled to round out the first week of classes. The agencies involved typically had projects ready to tackle that required groups of workers to complete. The volunteers chose from opportunities represented at a sign-upon event held right on campus. Transportation was provided to the work sites. The community agencies and work sites visited included East and Central Pasco Habitat for Humanity, the Pioneer Florida Museum and Village, local schools, area animal shelters, a nursing home, and many more. Service to community is one of the core values of Saint Leo University.
