Benedict College Hosts 18th Annual PLUS Day

The Benedict College Service-Learning and Leadership Development (SLLD) Program is proud to announce its 18th Annual PLUS Day (Preparation for Leadership and Unity through Service Day). PLUS Day will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, 2013, and all activities are free and open to the public.

PLUS Day was established at Benedict College to allow college students of the community and the state to engage in a day of service collaboratively with the Benedict College family. The event organizers view PLUS Day as a means of fostering the service ethic of the College’s mission by motivating students and communities across the Midlands to unite to affect change in the community.

The Benedict College family extends an invitation to service organizations and student leaders from neighboring schools and faith-based organizations to engage in this day of community service at established locations in the Midlands. PLUS Day participants will help feed the homeless, plant gardens, create arts and crafts with seniors, and engage in other services to help improve communities in the Columbia area.

Registration for PLUS Day will begin at 7:30 a.m. in the Benjamin E. Mays Human Resource Center (HRC) followed by a service rally at 8:00 a.m.  Immediately following the service rally, volunteers will board buses and convene at the service sites until 12:00 p.m.
