400 Emory Public Health Students Team up to Help Atlantans in Need
WHAT:

More than 400 Emory University Rollins School of Public Health students will roll up their sleeves for a day of service to help Atlanta communities in need.

This is the second year that incoming public health students will participate in "Rollins-teer Day" as part of new student orientation. The event was such a hit with last year's incoming class that organizers planned an encore service day this year and added more than a dozen volunteer sites for students to choose from.

In addition, the Rollins-teer Service Learning Program was established so students can stay connected to the community throughout their time at the Rollins School of Public Health.

WHEN:

Thursday, Aug. 28, 2008

WHERE:

Service sites include:

  • Atlanta Union Mission
  • Atlanta Community Food Bank
  • Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta
