270+ Mount Mercy students volunteer, explore city during Mustangs in Action Day

More than 270 Mount Mercy University students are teaming up with local organizations to help with service projects around the city during Mustangs in Action Day, Tuesday, Aug. 22, 9 a.m.–Noon.

For the third consecutive year, Mount Mercy students are encouraged to explore Cedar Rapids while participating in service projects. Organizations involved include Catherine McAuley Center, Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance, Discovery Living, Feed Iowa First and Jane Boyd Community House.

“It’s important that students are introduced to service and volunteerism right away in their college career, because it’s their first introduction to what Mount Mercy stands for—being that we are grounded in service to the community,” said Jamarco Clark, Mount Mercy’s coordinator of volunteerism & service-learning. “They will get to make an impact on the city that will become their new home away from home. It gives them the opportunity to immediately make a mark on this beautiful community.”

Mount Mercy faculty and staff will also join the students, totaling over 300 volunteers.
