Trinity Loves Palos: Photogallery
That’s how more than 100 students, professors, and staff spent their May 4, volunteering on campus and in the community during the College’s 12th annual “Love Palos” event.
Groups of workers were assigned to various work sites and tasks, including sprucing up the Trinity Trail and the Palos Heights pool. Each site was overseen by student leaders and members of Trinity’s Serve Committee.
“This year, I had the opportunity to lead a group of students to help clean up the Navajo neighborhood, and it was a great experience,” said Hannah Huisman ’16 of Hudsonville, Michigan. “Even though we, as college students, are nomads in the way we come and go during our four years here, an event like Love Palos reminds us that we are a part of a larger story. It’s an incredible opportunity to give back to the community that gives so much to us. Additionally, it is a blessing to serve alongside our fellow students.”
Once again, the President’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge group joined the initiative. The group is comprised of Trinity Christian College students and local Arab-American students attending a variety of Chicago colleges and universities. The group has been working over diligently on the Cal-Sag Trail.
Teams worked hard all morning and also enjoyed a time of prayer and fellowship.
