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.
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.
