INDIANAPOLIS — About 400 Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis students will clean, paint, landscape and otherwise assist Indianapolis community organizations on Oct. 2 as part of the United Way Day of Caring.
The student volunteers will be working with 19 community groups, beginning at 8 a.m. The event ends at 1:30 p.m.
Among the organizations that will receive a helping hand from students are the Baxter YMCA, Cats Haven, MLK Park, White River State Park, Exodus Refugee, Broad Ripple Village Association, Damien Center, Vonnegut Library, Lyrical Park and the Indiana State Museum.
Some students volunteered individually, and some schools, including Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, are fielding a team of students.
“Volunteering for the United Way Day of Caring is a way to illustrate that faculty, staff and students of our law school are committed to making our local community a better place,” said Lindsey Mosier, IU McKinney’s admissions information coordinator, who is leading the law school’s team effort. “It is also a way to help reinforce the connectivity to the network within the IUPUI campus and community.”
