Posted: Friday, 13 September 2013

TROY - Troy University students will spread out across Pike County from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday for the University's annual “Care for the Community Day."

Designed as a remembrance of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, “Care for the Community" enables students to take part in community service projects at various locations around Troy. Projects will benefit the Salvation Army, Boys and Girls Club, Noble Manor assisted living facility, Pike Pioneer Museum, Habitat for Humanity, Sav-A-Life of Troy, the Head Start program and the Alternative Learning Center.

“This is a great way for the students to give back to the community and the City of Troy," said Jonathan Cellon, coordinator of the University's Service Learning and Civic Engagement program. “The community benefits from student involvement and volunteerism."
