Hundreds of Hope College Students Spend Saturday Volunteering

You might see Hope College Students out and around Holland Saturday volunteering as part of their new student orientation.

Hope College spokeswoman Wilma Hart told WOOD Radio about the Time to Serve program.

"It's part of orientation.  We've done it for probably close to 15 years now."

There are about 350 freshman volunteering, along with 70 upper-class students, involved in the program this year.

They work in groups of 6 to 10 doing an array of projects from painting houses to sorting bibles, according to Hart.

"We have about 38 locations all throughout the City of Holland -- anywhere from nonprofits, to churches, to individual homes, to the Critter Barn."

Hart said it's a great way for students to get to know eachother and the community.
