Habitat Work Day Planned for Sept. 9

8/30/2006 —

Penn State York students, faculty, and staff will provide community service on Saturday, Sept. 9, at a Habitat for Humanity site in York. The group from the campus will work from 8:30 a.m. until noon. This is a first in a series of service projects the campus has planned in the York community. Anyone older than age 16 can participate.

Those interested in participating the work day should contact Ann Fetterman at axf25@psu.edu via e-mail. Fetterman leads the campus' community service efforts. A work day is scheduled for 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 7, at Our Daily Bread soup kitchen. Last year the campus collected several hundred pounds of peanut butter and jelly for the Salvation Army, worked at Habitat for Humanity several days, helped clean up the Codorus Creek, helped clean up Camp Pennwood, collected backpacks and school supplies for the York Homeless Student Initiative, collected books for a community organization and worked at Our Daily Bread soup kitchen.
