LindenGiving, a community outreach endeavor, partnered with St. Charles Parks on Wednesday for a service project at DuSable Park and the Motorcycle Training Center. Volunteers from across campus gave their time to grounds clean up and trash collection to beautify the park space. In addition, volunteers painted three sheds on park grounds.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for us to give back to the community of St. Charles,” said Beverly Porter, chair of LindenGiving. Under Porter’s guidance, LindenGiving has fulfilled several initiatives in its inaugural year with more planned throughout the summer.
Jenna Biagi, program coordinator for campus activities, shared thoughts on the LindenGiving initiative. “I volunteered today because I wanted to continue serving the St. Charles community in every way possible after seeing the positive impact I had on the community while being Vice President of Community Outreach this past year, and serving as a member for Alpha Phi Omega the service co-ed fraternity on campus while I was a student.” Biagi continued, “LindenGiving gave me an opportunity to fulfill this as a staff member at Lindenwood and I am so thankful to have even more opportunities to serve the St. Charles community!”
LindenGiving is planning another event in late summer to benefit the St. Charles community, and will continue outreach initiatives throughout the 2021-22 academic year. To make a gift to LindenGiving or for more information, please visit the website.
