Linfield College volunteers honor local community with service

More than 150 students, professors and staff spread out through the community to offer enthusiastic volunteer support on Make a Difference Day.

Linfield College volunteers served at 16 organizations, including the McMinnville Coat Drive, YCAP, Urban Farm, McMinnville Senior Center, Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul, Reading for All, Miller Woods, Homeward Bound Treasures, Habitat for Humanity, City of McMinnville Wastewater Services, McMinnville Downtown Association and Diaper Ministries.

Linfield College was named to the 2012 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll in recognition of outstanding leadership in community engagement and service learning.

Make a Difference Day, the largest community service effort in the U.S., prompts corporations, government leaders, charitable organizations and individuals to volunteer and perform service projects for one day.
