Students volunteer in community during Taste of Service

Taste of Service 2016Linfield College students explored the local community while lending a hand during Linfield’s Taste of Service Day Saturday, Sept. 24.

Students served together at various community-based organizations, including the Yamhill Community Action Partnership, Greater Yamhill Watershed Council, McMinnville Library, Habitat for Humanity and other non-profits in the area. Last year, more than 70 students participated.

“The organization may have us cleaning up around their building or doing maintenance, and although the impact may not be as noticeable as with a large project, the work is greatly appreciated,” said Deizhanna Kaya-Abad, Linfield senior and Change Corps Days of Service director. “Volunteering is important, because most of the organizations we work with rely on volunteers and the help they provide.”

Change Corps is made up of student leaders who plan and host a number of events, working to create a welcoming and vibrant culture of service on campus.
