More than 170 School of Business volunteers spent the afternoon engaged in community service April 5. Each spring, the John Cook School of Business Service Leadership Program coordinates a day of service where students, faculty and staff from the School of Business share in an experience of working side by side for the common good of the St. Louis community.
The service site for this years' service day was Mathews-Dickey Boys' and Girls' Club, an organization that serves more than 40,000 young men and women throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area through athletic competition and afterschool programming. School of Business volunteers cleaned, painted, and did landscaping work throughout the large Mathews-Dickey campus.
In addition to the work at Mathews-Dickey, 20 students did service at the YWCA on-campus location.
The planning committee this year was assisted by the efforts of the SLU grounds, facilities and custodial departments in securing donations and supplies.
