Student volunteers to hold Spring Fling community service day April 10

March 24, 2010

Student volunteer workers from the Luther College Congregation will help Decorah residents with spring chores on Saturday, April 10, when Luther holds its annual Spring Fling community service day.

Luther students will help Decorah community residents with yard work, planting, light housework, garage cleaning, storm window removal and window screen installation, window cleaning and other spring chores.

The day’s volunteer work schedule will give priority to Decorah residents who are elderly or handicapped, but any resident who is in need of Spring Fling help may participate in the project. There is no charge for the Spring Fling services, but donations will be accepted.

To sign up, contact Luther College Ministries, telephone (563) 387-1271, email address ministry@luther.edu before Monday, April 5. Please provide a brief description of the household tasks to be completed and the number of students needed. 

A group of students will be assigned to go to each home for a morning or afternoon of volunteer work on April 10.

All donations to Spring Fling will support the global mission of ELCA. Most of the funds will be given to the Lutheran Disaster Response to help with the aftermath of the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile and part will be given to the Free Clinic in Decorah.
