Baylor Students Step Out for Day of Service Nov. 2

Oct. 31, 1996

More than 2,500 Baylor University students are "Steppin' Out" to provide a "Day of Service" to the Waco community Saturday, Nov. 2, by giving four hours of their time to 72 different Waco-area organizations in need of service. Students are scheduled to paint houses, visit nursing homes and clean up the trails in several state parks.

"Tool Pick-up" is set for 8 a.m. in front of the Bill Daniel Student Center. Students needing shovels, paint brushes, trash bags, etc., will collect their "tools" before heading out to their assigned worksites by 9 a.m.

Students from approximately 60 campus organizations such as honor societies, fraternities and sororities, residence halls and international student associations have signed up to participate.

In its 11th year, Baylor's "Steppin' Out" has grown to become one of the largest university service programs in the nation and has been used as a model to start similar programs nationwide.

Following their service in the community, students will gather from 12:30-2:30 p.m. in the SUB Bowl for a "Celebration of Service." Students will share their experiences of the day while enjoying music, door prizes, food and fellowship.
