Hundreds of students
set to volunteer this weekend

More than 300 students from California State University, Sacramento will roll up their sleeves and get to work for the community from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 6.

In all, 11 organizations will get extra help during the student government's semi-annual "Community Service Day."

Students will remove overgrown brush and help restore native habitat with the American River Parkway Foundation, help the Sacramento Children's Home prepare the La Casita store for the holidays and assist the Sacramento Fire Department with a fire prevention program in Old Sacramento.

The students will also work with the Alzheimer's Association, Arcade Creek Park and Recreation, the California Native Plant Society, the Effie Yeaw Nature Center, Hart Senior Center, Orange Grove School, Sacramento Neighborhood Housing and the YWCA.

Each volunteer will receive breakfast, lunch and a T-shirt. The day begins with an 8 a.m. sign-in and breakfast at the University Union Ballroom. Work will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Students may still sign up by calling (916) 278-4241, and volunteer opportunities will also be available for those who do not call in advance.

Media assistance, including more detailed information on the volunteer sites, is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
