Do Good Day is April 3
Friday, March 30th, 2012
Throughout the academic year, the West Virginia Wesleyan College community remains committed to service and giving. To celebrate Wesleyan’s dedication to this honored tradition, the college will host Do Good Day – with new and exciting activities — from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 3. Most events will be in Wesley Chapel.
One of the unique elements of this year’s Do Good Day is the creation of Wesleyan Peace Flags. Organizers of Do Good Day hope each member of the Wesleyan community will create an individual flag representing a vision of service and “doing good.” All the materials to create a flag will be provided; and when it’s finished, the individual flag will be connected to the others and displayed in Wesley Chapel.
Other activities planned for Do Good Day are A Million Thanks for the Troops, which enables participants to create cards and messages to send to military members — active, reserve and veterans; crafting beaded Bracelets and bookmarks for nursing home residents; Project Linus Blankets gives students a chance to make a polar fleece blankets that will be sent throughout the nation to children staying in hospitals; a book drive collecting appropriate literature for West Virginia prison libraries; Parish House food drive; blood drive, coordinated by Alpha Sigma Phi, in the auxiliary gym from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.; and two Make It Shine litter cleanup projects, both of which will take place off campus.
