Kansas Wesleyan students turned out to lend a hand the weekend of April 22–23 with a wide range of service projects.

A group of students headed to Goddard Place, a camp near Morland, Kansas, on Friday evening with Director of Experiential Learning Dr. Meredith Drees. They planned and facilitated a day-long program for teens called “Mud and Morals,” which included discussions on ethics and morality. The group also worked on a service project for the camp and spent time Sunday on reflection and devotion.

KWU students were also busy in Salina. Several students helped with the Walk MS event Saturday at Gaves Family Sports Complex. The walk is a fundraiser for the National MS Society.

Spring Spruce-Up marked Earth Day on Saturday. The community-wide event includes projects like trash pick-up, weeding and making rain barrels. KWU students helped with projects, including cleaning sculptures in Oakdale Park.

On Sunday, Student Government Association planned Project H.E.R.O. Almost 100 students signed up for the day of service, which included work at Big Brothers Big Sisters, Ashby House, Lakewood, Indian Rock and Thomas parks, Smokey Hill Rehabilitation Center and DVACK.
