On Saturday, Dec. 1, Miss Jackson State University 2012-2013, Sarah Brown, is requesting volunteers for her upcoming initiative, Tiger Make-A-Difference Day. Brown arranged for volunteers to participate in one of three community service projects that will happen simultaneously.

“This event will present an opportunity for alumni, students and community members to show unity by serving at different community service projects in the area,” Brown said. “It also really illustrates JSU President Carolyn Meyers’ theme of One Jackson State University.”

From 10 a.m. to noon, volunteers will be able to participate in community service projects at the Stewpot Community Center at 1100 W. Capitol St. in Jackson; Pleasant Hills Nursing Home at 1600 Raymond Rd. in Jackson; or on the JSU campus for the Campus Clean Up project.

A ribbon cutting ceremony of the Gibbs-Green Pedestrian Walkway will launch the “Make-A-Difference” Day at 9 a.m., and thereafter volunteers will be transported to their destinations.

Jackson State students who volunteer will receive double credit for community service hours during this project.
