More than 500 Franklin & Marshall College students fanned out across Lancaster County in early April for the largest community outreach event since F&M’s TeamWork was established in 2004.
This year, the Student-Athlete Leadership Council teamed up with the Ware Institute for Civic Engagement and expanded TeamWork’s community service projects to a three-day initiative. The participating students included team members from F&M soccer (women’s and men’s), squash, volleyball, swimming, basketball (men’s and women’s), lacrosse (women’s and men’s), field hockey, track (men’s and women’s), and wrestling. Others participating represented women’s rugby, Weis and Brooks College Houses, S.I.S.T.E.R.S, ACES Mentors, and a few fraternities and sororities.
The students painted, cleaned and planted at 20 locations including the Salvation Army in Lancaster, the Wolf Sanctuary in Lititz, the Boys & Girls Club Camp Hogan in Millersville and the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay in Manheim.
Check out some photos of the students collecting canned food and helping out at one of the community’s nonprofit agencies:
