UPDATE: Twenty one SPU students were hard at work today at Magnolia’s Lawton School, putting in over 100 hours of weeding, pruning, mulching, raking and sweeping. They completely spruced up the grounds of the school. (Thanks Scott for the photos!)
Nearly 800 Seattle Pacific University students will start off the new school year by spending their first day in college volunteering all over the city. From 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 26, students will lead volunteers groups to fix up houses, clean parks, remove graffiti and participate in other projects at 30 different locations around town, as part of SPU’s “CityQuest,” an annual community service orientation. Volunteers will be working in Magnolia cleaning up Lawton School. They will work on the grounds of the school, weeding and doing general yardwork and clean up.
