College Ministries to conduct annual Fall Fling community assistance effort Oct. 23

Oct. 6, 2010

Luther College student volunteers will help Decorah area residents with fall house cleaning, repair and winterizing chores Saturday, Oct. 23, when Luther College Ministries conducts its annual Fall Fling community assistance day.

Luther students will provide assistance with light-duty household work, including yard raking, house and yard cleaning, gutter cleaning, installing storm windows, washing windows and similar tasks.

Any member of the Decorah community who is elderly, handicapped or simply in need of assistance may participate in this event. To schedule workers for the Oct. 23 Fall Fling or to sign up to participate, contact Luther's College Ministries office, telephone (563) 387-1040, by Friday, Oct. 15.

There is no charge for the Fall Fling services; however, participating households often offer to give a donation. This year’s donations have been designated by the Luther College Student Congregation to benefit the Decorah Area Free Clinic and Lutheran World Relief for efforts in responding to the devastating floods in Pakistan.
