300+ Mount Mercy community members volunteer, explore city during Mustangs in Action Day

More than 300 Mount Mercy University students, staff and faculty are teaming up with local organizations to help with service projects around Cedar Rapids during Mustangs in Action Day, Tuesday, Aug. 21, 9 a.m.–Noon.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Mount Mercy community is encouraged to explore the city while participating in projects that will better the area. Projects include working with Waypoint to prepare their classrooms for the school year, deep cleaning at Willis Dady, helping HACAP paint buildings, gardening with the Catherine McAuley Center, preparing Mustang Market for the fall opening, and helping CRMEA get ready for Market after Dark.

“The MMU community always looks forward to this event to kick off the school year,” said Jamarco Clark, Mount Mercy’s director of volunteerism & service-learning. “While the full MMU community is invited, it’s an introduction to service for our new Mustangs. Allowing them to start the year making a positive impact in the Cedar Rapids community sets the tone from a service standpoint for what our year will be like.”
