  3rd Annual Inspired Day of Service -- Photo Slideshow

About 250 DSU students spread out throughout the state on the morning and afternoon of Saturday, March 29 to do community service work as part of the 3rd annual Inspired Day of Service.

For images of the students at work, click on the below photo slideshow, followed by more information about the outreach effort:


The students did community service in all three counties of the state at the following locations: the A.I. DuPont Middle School in Greenville, the Bellevue Community Center and the West End Neighborhood House (both) in Wilmington, the Brandywine Counseling Center in Newark, the Simon Circle Boys & Girls Club in Dover, the Food Bank of Delaware in Milford, and First State Community Action in Georgetown.

U.S. Sen. Tom Carper showed up at the Bellevue site to give the students some encouragement as well as lend a helping hand.

Not only did DSU President Harry L. Williams show up to put in some work with the students at the Simon Circle and Food Bank sites, but so did his family – DSU First Lady Dr. Robin Williams and their two sons, Austin and Gavin.

The work included cleaning, painting, gardening and minor renovation work.

While the annual Inspired Day of Service was created as a way for DSU Inspire Scholarship students to work off some of their required community service hours, many other students who are do not have such a requirement also participate in the outreach.
