Student volunteers from the Luther College Student Congregation will help Decorah's residents with spring chores Saturday, April 14 when Luther holds its annual Spring Fling community service day.
Luther students will help Decorah community residents with yard work, planting, light housework, window removal and cleaning, and other spring chores.
A group of students will be assigned to go to each home during either the morning or afternoon of April 14.
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 the Spring Fling help may participate in the project. There is no charge for the Spring Fling services, but donations will be accepted.
All donations to Spring Fling will be split between the ELCA Malaria Campaign and the Northeast Iowa Peace and Justice Center.
Decorah residents may sign up by contacting Luther College Ministries, telephone (563) 387-1271, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org before Tuesday, April 10. Please provide a brief explanation of the household or yard tasks to be completed in a 1.5 hour time frame.
