University of Mobile to Serve Greater Mobile Area on Oct. 25

Amber Kelley News

MOBILE, Ala. – The University of Mobile community is getting ready to impact over 30 sites by providing willing hands and hearts to do whatever is needed.

The University of Mobile will send out over 700 students, faculty and staff to serve at locations in Mobile and Baldwin counties on Oct. 25 for Project Serve.

Groups will head out to local schools, churches, non-profits, ministries and more to complete projects that will relieve needs, in the annual university-wide community service project.

UM President Dr. Lonnie Burnett says that serving the community helps students maintain a balanced life while in college.

Burnett says, “It is not unusual for a university student to become so involved in meeting the demands on their time that they become overly self-absorbed. Project Serve gives us all a chance to step back and see the needs around us.  It gives us a great opportunity to demonstrate our university’s Christ-centered focus to the surrounding communities.”

The University of Mobile will also be taking part in a campus-wide service project by collecting school supplies to donate to area schools.
