Wright State University employees gave back to the community by volunteering throughout Raider Country at six area nonprofit organizations.
It was all part of a March 4 university-wide service day opportunity for employees, who were able to take a half-day off work to help the community without having to use leave time. All 88 volunteer slots for the second We Serve U Day were filled.
The locations that were chosen were, 4 Paws for Ability in Xenia, Crayons To Classrooms, YWCA, Clothes That Works, The Foodbank and the Office of Admissions at Wright State.
“What we really hope people take away from this opportunity is that they make a connection with a local nonprofit and they volunteer on a regular basis,” said Joanie Hendricks, co-chair of We Serve U.
Wright State employees will have another chance to participate at the next We Serve U Day on Oct. 9.
