Students Head ‘Into The Streets’ at Nine Community Service Sites
VCU’s 19th annual day of service drew more than 250 students into the Richmond community Saturday, Sept. 24. The Into The Streets program, sponsored by University Student Commons and Activities’ Student Leadership and Involvement Center, promotes campus and community unity, allowing students to come together for one day of the year to give back to the surrounding community through service projects.
This year, VCU students volunteered across nine different sites, including Grow On! Garden, the American Diabetes Association, Patrick Henry Elementary School, Shalom Farms, Friends of Bryan Park, Broad Street Mile, Oregon Hill Association, Dress for Success and the Children’s Museum of Richmond. Each site was led and coordinated by a student leader from the Honors College. More than 200 first-year Honors College students volunteered.
