More than 200 students in Davidson’s dozen Patterson Court fraternities and eating clubs spread goodwill through the community recently with a “Service Day.”
Libby Hubbard ’08, community service chair for the Patterson Court Council (PCC), said the goal was involving students in hands-on helping. “All of the houses do a great job with fundraising for various causes, but this was an opportunity for direct connection,” she explained.
The political science major from Greenwich, Conn., said the PCC stages one all-together service activity each semester. Last spring, it was a fundraising barbecue that raised $3,200 for the college’s “Engage for Change” initiative.
While some Davidson graduates pursue careers in the non-profit community service sector after graduation, Hubbard noted that most will not be involved full-time. “We want to increase ways for students to incorporate service into their lives that’s sustainable with their other priorities,” she explained. “Getting them involved like this for a day might give them a model for their future involvement.”
