Coe College Students Spend Sunday Doing Service Work
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - About 100 Coe College students gathered to do some spring cleaning Sunday afternoon -- not their dorms but other places.
It was a part of their Spring 500 service project. They worked alongside people in the Mound View neighborhood -- just east of Coe. With garbage and recycling bags in hand, they took to the neighborhood streets. One organizer said it isn't just about cleaning the streets.
"It lowers crime rates, it makes the place look better. It makes you feel like somewhere you're proud to be and to live, to interact with each other," Amanda Kohn, Service Events Coordinator said.
The goal was to complete 500 hours of service.
