City of Spartanburg partners with CollegeTown Service Initiative

THE CITY OF SPARTANBURG PARTNERS WITH COLLEGE TOWN
SERVICE INITIATIVE


College Town Service Initiative (CSI) provides opportunities for college students all over Spartanburg County to become involved and connected with the community around them through volunteer projects.

In partnership with the City of Spartanburg, and coinciding with Christmas in Action on April 10th, CSI will begin with a breakfast at The Hangar at First Baptist, following with a short program educating the students on the projects for the day. They will be installing Born Learning trails in three neighborhood parks, which will encourage parent-child interaction with signs that encourage singing, playing, and learning.

In partnership with the City of Spartanburg, CSI will also work on various neighborhood clean ups and graffiti painting removal, as well as other landscaping and maintenance projects throughout the City.

College Town Coordinator, Rogers Brandt states, “It is our hope that this day of service will help students feel more invested in their college community, which is their home for their college education and beyond.”
