Service

Stitching ministry into daily life

The hectic pace of the average college student’s life makes cramming in extra activities—like helping others—seem next to impossible. But one Union College student and a couple of recent graduates found a way to stitch the opportunity to help others into their busy lives. On Sabbath afternoon, Nov. 3, they want to share that opportunity with the rest of Union’s campus.

Service day's impact felt beyond those served

Yesterday, 750 Union College students and employees took the day off from school to provide community service at nearly 80 sites around the city of Lincoln. Started in 1981 as Project Brush, Union's annual service day now known as Project Impact has seen an estimated 18,300 volunteers donate 115,000 hours over the past 31 years.

Thirty years of Project Impact

Often, the most valuable lessons learned by Union College students are not taught in a classroom. They aren’t found in any textbook, and class attendance isn’t required. In fact, for some lessons, class will be canceled.

On September 8, more than 800 students and employees will voluntarily swap pencils and paper for paintbrushes and cleaning supplies for the 30th anniversary of Project Impact, the college's service day. “We want to be God’s hands and feet,” said Anna Coridan, junior nursing major and 2011 Project Impact coordinator.
