HUNDREDS OF K-STATERS TO VOLUNTEER DURING COMMUNITY SERVICE WEEK OCT. 24-30

MANHATTAN -- More than 500 Kansas State University students and Manhattan community members will have a chance to donate their time and energy during Community Service Week, Oct. 24-30.

This year's week of service, organized by K-State students and hosted by the K-State Volunteer Center of Manhattan, offers numerous projects to match an array of interests and help service agencies in the community.

Richard Weerts, K-State senior in elementary education, Olathe, and a student program coordinator at the volunteer center, said that Community Service Week matches willing volunteers with agencies in need.

"Community Service Week is an opportunity for students and community members alike to experience rich meaningful fulfillment that only serving others in your community can give," he said.

Anyone interested in volunteering can view project descriptions and the week's events at:
