Students volunteered to spruce up Winona’s Lake Park.

The semester was barely a week old, and already our students were out in the community performing service projects. More than 80 (mostly freshmen doing their first community service in Winona) donated an afternoon to clean up Lake Park’s playgrounds, bike path, and sand volleyball courts, as well as the Winona Visitor Center.

The annual event sponsored by Campus Ministry was made possible by a generous grant from the Otto Bremer Foundation. The grant will help the Office of Campus Ministry to expand and enhance the many other outreach activities that engage our students with people in need and communities in Southeastern Minnesota.
