The Greenville Arts Council is excited to announce that we will be hosting 35 students from the College of St. Scholastica on an alternative spring break trips tomorrow. This group is the final of three different groups of college students (40 students each) from the service organization Students Today Leaders Forever will be making Greenville and the Greenville Arts Council/E.E. Bass a stop on the Pay It Forward Tour, where they will be participating in a variety of four hour long service projects. To date, the group has had nearly 9,500 volunteers and has provided over 115,000 hours of community service across the county.
The group of students will be staying at E.E. Bass overnight this evening prior to their service project tomorrow from 9 am to noon. The service project is open to any interested participants in the community, local groups working with middle or high-school aged students are encouraged to attend the event for the opportunity to have their students meet and interact with college students from a different part of the country. Service hours will be documented for all those that participate.
Projects will include painting, working in the Greenville Renaissance Scholars community garden, organizing costumes with Delta Center Stage, and cleaning the Greenville Arts Council’s pottery room. To learn more, call Megan at the Greenville Arts Council at 662.332.2246.
