You've Been Served, a day of community and commitment

By Mark Shuller - Email

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX 19) – Students, faculty, staff and alumni from UC College of Law will join with Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory, the City of Cincinnati, and various non-profit organizations for a major service event on September 11, 2010. "You've been Served" is a day of community commitment, organized by law students to commemorate the day and to encourage broader participation in service.

"We are thrilled by the overwhelming response we've received from the law school and greater Cincinnati communities," said Megan Collard, an event organizer. "By working with local non-profits and partnering with the Mayor Mallory's office, we hope that we can build lasting relationships that foster community involvement."

Participants will arrive at the College of Law (room 114) for a brief morning program beginning at 9:30 a.m. and remarks from the Mayor and will then proceed to their selected service site.

More than 150 students, faculty, staff and alumni are expected to participate in over 20 worksites throughout the tri-state area, working with children and seniors, and with organizations like Keep Cincinnati Beautiful and Habitat for Humanity. For a full list of site options, visit http://law.uc.edu/news/events/communityservice.shtml.

"9/11 is the perfect time to give back to our city," added Collard. "Even though we're students, this is our home and we're happy to help serve it."
