New Students Participate in 20th Lend-A-Hand to Lincoln
New Nebraska Wesleyan University students continued a 20-year tradition on August 23 when they participated in the annual Lend-A-Hand to Lincoln.
Each year new first-year students join current students, faculty and staff to volunteer at nearly 25 non-profit agencies throughout Lincoln. The event helps area nonprofits with chores they may not be able to get to while giving new students an opportunity to serve a city they will call home for the next four years.
Students spent their day cleaning, weeding, mulching, sorting and painting at the agencies.
On Saturday, September 6, alumni will also particiate in a Lend-A-Hand day. They will gather in cities across the country and serve their own communities. Participating cities include Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Kansas City, New York City, Omaha and Lincoln. Learn more about our alumni Lend-A-Hand day.
