193 Denver Seminary Students, Faculty, and Staff Volunteer in Littleton Community
Littleton, CO, September 28, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Denver Seminary cancelled classes and closed their offices on Tuesday, September 24th for their first annual Day to Serve. The Seminary partnered with over 15 project sites in Littleton to serve and build relationships with the community. The Colorado Center for the Blind, Hudson Gardens, South Platte Park, ARC Thrift Stores, and East Elementary School are among the sites that were served by 193 students, faculty, and staff.
Over the years, the Seminary has actively engaged the community; however, this was the first year such structure, intent, and purpose was placed on a certain day to serve the Littleton community. Denver Seminary’s Day to Serve is a direct result of President Mark Young’s vision to live out the mission of the school to engage the needs of the world.
Zandy Wennerstrom, Denver Seminary’s HR Director and event leader states, “The event was a great opportunity for our institution and the community. Our eyes were opened to the hearts and needs of people in our neighborhood of Littleton, relationships were built, and we were able to identify opportunities for service in the future.”
