ALLIANCE, Ohio –The Alliance Kiwanis Club and the Regula Center for Public Service and Civic Engagement at the University of Mount Union will host the Annual Kiwanis One Day of Service in honor of Global Youth Service Day on Saturday, April 28.
Celebrated each spring in the community, the event brings together children, college students and community members to complete projects throughout the parks in preparation for the summer season.
‘This event has grown in recent years and is a great way for volunteers of all ages to give back,” said Abby Honaker Schroeder, Director of the Regula Center.
This year, the Regula Center has also partnered with Mount Union organizations including the Alpha Phi Omega co-ed service fraternity, the football team and many others as a way to increase participation.
Kiwanis Club members, the Key Club at Alliance High School and Builders Club at Alliance Middle School will participate in the event as well.
The event will kick off at 9 a.m. at the Robertson Community Center where groups will gather before traveling to various parks to mulch, stain furniture and clean, among other projects. Volunteering will conclude at approximately noon.
All are welcome to participate in the event to show their support for local parks, learn more about Kiwanis and make an impact on the community.
