Ivy Tech Community College to celebrate statewide Days of Service project

INDIANAPOLIS – Ivy Tech Community College will celebrate its 4th annual Ivy Tech Days of Service, which will take place April 9 through April 11 at all campuses statewide.

Service projects will be occurring across the state and involve more than 1,200 Ivy Tech faculty, staff and students.  Each campus will partner with service organizations in their community to provide hands-on projects for students, faculty and staff to complete together.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for students, faculty and staff to come together to serve others, support community organizations, and to learn more about the resources available in their local communities,” said Dr. Carey Treager Huber, Assistance Vice President of Student Life,  Development and Leadership at Ivy Tech.

Some examples of service projects happening around the state include the assembly of a house for a local family in partnership with Habitat for Humanity at Ivy Tech’s downtown Indianapolis campus, a shoe drive at the Lafayette campus in partnership with WaterStep to turn shoes into clean drinking water, a street clean-up in Terre Haute, and several volunteer opportunities at local shelters, food banks, beautification organizations and service organizations, such as Operational Love Ministries in Anderson, Kokomo Urban Outreach, Potawatomi Zoo and the Northwest Indiana Food Bank to name a few.

A summary of all the various projects occurring across the college can be found at www.ivytech.edu/daysofservice.
