14th Annual "Into the Streets"- St. Norbert College Day of Community Service
St. Norbert College's first-year students will partake in an afternoon of community service, "Into the Streets," on Friday, Aug. 25, from 1:45 to 5 p.m. The kick-off
rally will be held at Walter Theatre on campus. Following the rally, community service will be performed in over 30 different locations, both on and off campus, with
over 500 students participating.
"Into the Streets" encourages participants to become active in their surrounding communities through service and action. Its primary goal is to orient new students
to the area and forge ties with the community. Service is a founding principle of the Norbertine order and St. Norbert College.
For the sixth year in a row, as part of "Into the Streets," a potato drop will be held. At the potato drop, students will unload (from a donated Schneider semi-truck)
and distribute approximately 5,000 bags of potatoes to various community food pantries that will pick up from Paul's Pantry.
This day of service is organized by the St. Norbert College Office of Leadership, Student Engagement and First Year Experience and the Sturzl Center for Community
Service and Learning.
Festival Foods has donated 42 cases of water for the event and Schneider will provide transportation for the potatoes.
