CONCORDIA MOVES THE MASSES OF VOLUNTEERS FOR
EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION BUILD IN MOORHEAD
Concordia College, Moorhead, Minn., students and staff are working around the clock to shuttle volunteers to the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition work site just south of the Concordia College campus. The college has donated the use of a shuttle van and students and staff members are volunteering in three-hour shifts, 24-hours a day driving the van. Assistant Dean of Student Leadership and Service Chelle Lyons Hanson coordinated the effort and believes it is another valuable way to serve.
“Educating students to recognize the role they have to play as leaders and servants in the world is our mission,” Lyons Hanson says. “We are called to be actively engaged in the world and we appreciate the opportunity to be involved in such a meaningful project, especially since its occurring right in our backyard.”
Students and staff will volunteer for more than 150 hours during the week-long project.
Concordia College is a four-year liberal arts college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America offering 78 majors, including 18 honors majors, and 12 preprofessional programs.
