The University of Nebraska at Omaha is giving students, staff members and metropolitan Omaha residents opportunities to help out around the community.
UNO's Seven Days of Service program helps volunteers take spring break time to perform public service. About 1,500 volunteers will be working at sites around Omaha beginning Saturday and continuing Monday through March 23. Volunteers will work from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and do a variety of jobs, including painting, carpentry and landscaping.
Seven Days of Service began in 2003 when seven students helped coordinate the work of 70 others who donated their spring breaks to repairing homes for low-income families.
Contact UNO's Student-Community Leadership and Service office at 402-554-4083, or email firstname.lastname@example.org., for more information on how to participate.
