Students at Bethel College traded their textbooks for tools on Tuesday, October 1st. More than 950 students, faculty and staff offered their services to 45 non-profit organizations. It was Bethel's 14th annual Work Day, a day when classes were canceled, so the school could take part in community service projects. The volunteers did all kinds of projects from cleaning to painting to visiting with adult care and homeless center residents. (See the list at the bottom of this page.)

WFRN was just one of the places that the Bethel students visited. Here are a few shots of the team working on sprucing up our tower building and grounds.

In addition students washed the outside of our studios including all the windows and even trimed the bushes around our entrance sign.

In addition to WFRN, Bethel students worked at: Boys and Girls Club, Broadway Christian Parish, Camp Eberhart, Camp Millhouse, CASIE Center, Catholic Charities, American Lung Association, American Red Cross, Center for Hospice and Palliative Care, Center for the Homeless, The Children's Campus, College Park Missionary Church, Dismas House, Habitat for Humanity, Hannah Lindahl Children's Museum, Hannah's House, Healthwin Specialized Care, Holy Cross Care and Rehab, Holy Cross Living Center, Hope Rescue Mission, Humane Society, Ironwood HeAlth and Rehab, Keller Park Missionary Church, Life Station, Life Treatment Centers, Logan Center, Michiana Christian Service Camp, Mishawaka Parks Department, Nappanee Missionary Church, Camp Raybird, REAL Services, Reins of Life, The Res, RETA, St. Mark Missionary Church, St. Margaret's House, St. Joseph Care Center, Juvenile Justice Center, St. Vincent de Paul, Tanglewood Trace, 21st Century Scholars, YMCA, Youth Service Bureau: Safe Station, and YWCA.
