Spring Service Week reveals the ease of community service
Five minutes is all it takes to make a difference in the community.
That is the message Project Volunteer members hope to convey in this year's Spring Service Week.
"The whole purpose of Spring Service Week is to provide five to 10 minute service projects for UA students who might not experience these things otherwise," said Greg Billings, director of Project Volunteer, a program run through the University Activities Board.
The group designed projects that students can complete between classes like decorating ornaments for the elderly residents of Life Care Center.
Today, student volunteers will have the opportunity to write messages inside more than 150 donated children's books in a project called "Libros para los nios." The books will be sent to a school for children with disabilities in Sonora, Mexico.
