Eureka College Students to Provide Spring Cleanup for Community with 11th Annual Maroon and Golden Rule Project

Mar 14 2019

EUREKA – For the 11th straight year, Eureka College students will hold a community service project to provide Eureka residents and organizations with free spring cleanup. The Maroon and Gold Projects service day will be on April 27 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Since its inception, approximately 500 students have assisted approximately 120 residents and organizations with projects including yard work, painting, washing windows, moving furniture and spring cleaning.

The project stems from a grant received by Eureka College from Illinois Campus Compact to promote leadership and citizenship in the community. The grant covered the cost of launching the project, which takes its name from the Eureka College school colors of maroon and gold.

“I loved working with my classmates last year and observing their enthusiasm to serve,” Student Coordinator of Community Service Lauren Fitzanko said. “I look forward to visiting the people we helped again. Maroon and Gold is a service opportunity that strengthens the bond between Woodford County and Eureka College. Students are as happy to give help as community members are to receive it.”

If you are interested, please sign up as soon as possible. Forms must be submitted by March 31, 2019.
