Washington State University Tri-Cities is hoping to get some spring cleaning done on campus and to help some West Richland residents in need through a new service-based learning program.
The university will have Cougar Pride Days on April 4-5 as part of Cougs In The Community, the initiative begun by Chancellor H. Keith Moo-Young and his wife, Monika Moo-Young, a release said.
The program aims to bring students, faculty, alumni and others together to serve the community.
Volunteers will spend April 4 beautifying WSU Tri-Cities' campus in north Richland. All participants in the day's work must be at least 18 years old.
Never miss a local story.
The next day will be spent painting the homes of elderly, disabled or other struggling residents of Desert View Park, a manufactured home community in West Richland with Habitat for Humanity. Minors are eligible to volunteer but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Preregistration is required by March 28. Sign up by visiting tricity.wsu.edu/cougsinthecommunity.
