No one likes the never-ending task of raking leaves, but a group of college students spent their Saturday afternoon doing just that.
New members of Chi Omega sorority on William Woods University’s campus organized a “Rake-n-Run” community service project. These students walked down Court Street, rakes and bags in hand, and knocked on doors offering to rake and bag residents’ leaves.
Homeowners who were away found a clean yard and a note from the Chi Omegas when they returned.
Participants said it was a great time to bond as sisters and give back to the community.
Erin Strickland, Chi Omega new member, commented on the day’s activities, “I thought today was fun because it made you feel good inside and it was nice meeting residents of the Fulton community!”
Chi Omega sorority nationally supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation, but WWU members were happy they could spend a day giving back to the local community.
