COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Nearly 625 students, employees, and staff participated in the 8th annual CSU Day of Service on Saturday. 

“Day of Service is CSU’s way of kicking off the school year the right way - by giving back to the community,” said Anne Brown, community outreach advisor in CSU’s Office of Community Outreach. “It is yet another way for students to connect with friends and faculty while using their skills to make a meaningful impact on these organizations.”

CSU President Chris Markwood and his family added a fresh coat of paint to the walls of the Springer Opera House. Cougar athletes landscaped homes for military families and widows through House of Heroes, and hundreds of other Day of Service volunteers were stationed at Paws Humane, Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center and other nonprofit organizations in the Chattahoochee Valley, and were ready to lend a helping hand.

The following locations participated: 

  • Animal Ark Rescue
  • Boys and Girls Club
  • The Columbus Museum
  • Easter Seals
  • The Gardens at Calvary
  • Girls Inc.
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Help the Hooch (RiverWalk Island and Phenix City Amphitheater)
  • House of Heroes (multiple sites)
  • Keep Columbus Beautiful (Lakebottom Park)
  • Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center
  • PAWS Humane
  • Salvation Army
  • Springer Opera House
  • United Way
