ACU Service Action Leadership Team brings high schools and universities together


For immediate release
Nov. 12, 2001

Students at Abilene Christian University as well as high school and college students across Abilene will spend this Saturday improving and serving the community.

"Into the Streets -- Students in Service," formerly known as Intercollegiate Service Day, is a service project involving Abilene Christian University, McMurry University, Hardin-Simmons University, and, for the first time, three of the Abilene high schools.

ACU's Service Action Leadership Team organized the event, working to incorporate the different schools into one community-wide service project.

Those participating in the event will have the opportunity to serve the community through manual labor, working with children and working with the elderly.

Participants will meet at Nelson Park at 8 a.m. on Saturday for breakfast and a devotional before dispersing throughout the community. At the end of the day the groups will meet again to discuss their experiences and eat pizza together.

Kristy Perdue, publicity committee member for the Service Action Leadership Team at ACU, said she feels this is a great way to bring the three local high schools and the three universities together.

"It's a great way to get into the community and service work, and a great way to serve God and the community," Perdue said.
