The leaf-raking event is an annual
tradition at the college.
Jeff Nelson, director of student activities, says it's a great
way for the students to give back to the community. "Last year we
helped about 15 elderly people who simply could not get their yard
picked up," he said. "This
project helps those in need, and our students can feel good about
lending a hand. The students who donate their time and energy get
the satisfaction of helping others, and those who need help with
their leaves get it."
People who would like help with their leaves can call Jeff Nelson
at 735-5050, ext. 315, or John Stoltzenburg at 735-5050, ext. 327.
Requests will be limited to 15 people and will be taken on a
first-come, first-served basis.
