Every year Trinity students and faculty take time out of their busy spring schedules to take care of Palos Heights. On Saturday, May 4, the 11th annual “Love Palos” event took place, bringing the Trinity community together for a day of volunteer work.
Groups of workers split up to cover many tasks. From cleaning up the Trinity Trail and the Palos Heights pool, to picking up trash across the neighborhood and clearing the Cal-Sag Trail. Teams worked hard the entire morning and enjoyed their time of service and fellowship.
This year, the President’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge group joined the Love Palos initiative. The group is comprised of Trinity Christian College students and local Arab-American students attending a variety of Chicago colleges and universities. The clean-up day created an opportunity for students to work side by side toward a common goal. On Saturday, their goal was to begin expanding the shoulder along what will soon become the Cal-Sag Trail.
Other groups involved with Love Palos were the Navajo Hills Neighborhood Association, Circle Urban Ministries, and Restoration Ministries.
