Luther student volunteers to host annual fall Luther Serves Day

Luther College Student Congregation volunteers will participate in the annual fall Luther Serves event Saturday, Oct. 20. Volunteers will work in morning shifts between 9:30 a.m. and noon and afternoon shifts from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

Volunteers assist Decorah residents with yard work, light housework and other fall chores. The day's work schedule gives priority to Decorah residents who are elderly or disabled, but any resident in need of help may request volunteers.

Decorah residents may sign up by contacting College Ministries, (563) 387-1050 or [email protected], specifying the type of help needed and requesting a morning or afternoon shift of student workers. College Ministries will make every effort to accommodate all requests, but they will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

There is no charge for Luther Serves volunteer work, but donations will be accepted. All donations collected during the event will go to ELCA Disaster Response ministry to support relief work for Hurricane Florence victims.

A national liberal arts college with an enrollment of 2,005, Luther offers an academic curriculum that leads to the Bachelor of Arts degree in more than 60 majors and pre-professional programs. For more information about Luther visit the college's website:
