October 7, 2018

HUNTINGTON — Marshall University students, faculty and staff got their hands dirty as they worked on improvements to the greater Huntington community Friday during the university’s fall Day of Service.

The full day of projects, which began at 8 a.m. and continued until 3:30 p.m., included painting and cleaning at the A.D. Lewis Center, sorting donations and making burritos at Harmony House, helping with a building project for Habitat for Humanity, sorting donations at Facing Hunger Foodbank, gardening with the MU Sustainability Department and various tasks at the Cabell-Wayne Animal Shelter.

The Hal Greer Boulevard underpass was closed for a portion of the day as volunteers, including Marshall University President Jerome Gilbert, put a fresh coat of paint on the walls.
