TUFWC seeks opportunities to serve the community: one such avenue to accomplish this purpose is through her 5th Annual Community Service Day set for Saturday, November 9, 2002 from 8am to 12noon. TUFWC students, faculty, staff and administration will participate in service projects to support community organizations, area neighborhood associations and worthwhile causes in Fort Wayne. Service teams from TUFWC, organized by academic departments, will consist of students, faculty and staff alike. Two hundred participants are expected to engage in the meaningful service and learning experience. At the conclusion of the service opportunities, project teams will return to campus for a celebration meal and program of sharing.

Projects from previous years have included: painting over graffiti on area walls, bridges and abutments, fall clean-up at West Central Neighborhood Ministry, assistance in a renovation project at Love Church, cleaning education equipment at Brook Mill and Study Elementary, hosting a “reading fair” for community children at the Euell Wilson Center, and trimming hedges and weeds, along with other miscellaneous yard work, in several neighborhood associations. The morning of service will conclude with a celebration lunch held in Eicher Commons.
