Habitat for Humanity to Benefit from Baylor Law School's Inaugural Service Saturday

Students, who began their attendance at the Baylor Law School in the last year and half, may remember serving the community as a part of orientation. On Saturday, Nov. 13, all law school students, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to impact the local community as a part of Baylor Law's first Service Saturday.

Two teams will work at Waco Habitat for Humanity. A morning team will work from 8:30 a.m. to noon and the afternoon team will work from 1 to 4:30 p.m.

"They (Waco Habitat) recently bought a warehouse. We'll be painting and tearing down some of the interior walls," said Dean Heather Creed, assistant dean of professional development and student relations.

In the past, orientation groups helped Habitat for Humanity and Meals on Wheels and provided road-side and Brazos River clean up. The eventual goal is to have Service Saturdays once a month.

"We think group community service is a great way for the entering classes to get to know each other and get to know Waco a little more than they would as students," said Dean Creed, "It is also a way to embrace the fact that the legal profession is a service profession."
