200 SRU volunteers tackle fall cleanup in Slippery Rock Saturday     

 

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - More than 200 Slippery Rock University students and community members in the Slippery Rock will team up Saturday for the third annual "Polish the Rock" program designed to help clean-up the village and help residents with pre-winter chores.

          The day is part of National Make A Difference Day. Nationally, more than 4 million residents will work to make their community better.

          Saturday's events, coordinated by SRU's Institute for Community, Service-Learning and Nonprofit Leadership, begin with an 8:30 a.m. rally on campus followed by participants moving to the surrounding neighborhoods they have adopted.

          Tasks include collecting trash, moving furniture, raking leaves, painting and other projects that involved outside cleanup. 

          Those looking for help are required to reside in the borough and supply necessary tools and materials needed to complete the project.

          Anyone needing more details should contact Sarah Steele, project coordinator, at 724.738.2273.
