Campus Community Participates in Fourth Annual Fontbonne Day
SAINT LOUIS – Fontbonne University will host its fourth annual campus-wide community service effort, dubbed Fontbonne Day, Friday, April 29, beginning at 8 a.m. Faculty, staff and students will volunteer at 30 sites and organizations, joining together in a show of unity, service and commitment to Fontbonne’s mission.
“As a whole, the Fontbonne community really aspires to live out the university’s mission to serve a world in need,” said Sarah Boul, Fontbonne’s director of campus ministries. “Fontbonne Day gives us an opportunity to walk the walk.”
Fontbonne Day began in 2008 when more than 300 Fontbonne faculty and staff members volunteered at sites throughout the St. Louis community. Students are encouraged to participate, and other members of the Fontbonne community, including alumni and members of the board of trustees, have been invited as well.
Volunteer opportunities include the Foster and Adoptive Care Coalition, St. Patrick Center, Paraquad, Gateway Homeless Services and Operation Food Search. The day begins with a presentation by Dr. David Gray, and ends with a period of reflection in the late afternoon.
