Fall Community Service Opportunities
I wanted to make you aware of some service opportunities in the coming weeks.
Juniors and Seniors, please remember that you need to have 40 hours by May 1. It is better to spread those hours out over the course of the year than to wait until the spring.
Freshmen and Sophomores, you are encouraged to get involved in service as well, even when it's not a requirement. If you already do a lot of service and might get to 100 hours this year, you can still win the Presidential Service Award.

When: Saturday October 10, 7:00 AM - 11:00 AM

This is a charity 5k that is run in support of Boys Hope Girls Hope of St. Louis. Boys Hope Girls Hope is an organization that offers longer-term housing and academic support for at-risk youth. The group will need volunteers to direct runners as they make their way through the cross country course. Familiarity with the course would be helpful but not a requirement.
