SPU Students start new school year volunteering in Shoreline

Friday, September 17, 2010

Nearly 800 freshmen and transfer students at Seattle Pacific University will experience their first day of college off campus fixing up houses, removing graffiti, cleaning up parks, and countless other projects throughout the Seattle area.

This annual community service orientation called “CityQuest” is one way students live out the SPU mission of “engaging the culture and changing the world.”

On Saturday, September 25, 10:30 am - 2:30 pm, SPU students and staff will be at:
  • Food Lifeline at 1702 NE 150th St. They may be labeling canned goods, repacking 1500 pound totes of frozen vegetables, or sorting and inspecting donated food products.
  • World Concern at 19303 Fremont Ave N. They will write thank you cards for donors, and may also assist with sorting and packaging of Gift In Kind inventory (clothes, medical supplies, etc).
CityQuest brings together students, faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni to work in more than 30 different community service projects throughout Seattle.

Founded in 1891, Seattle Pacific University is a premier Christian university that equips people to engage the culture and change the world. Its comprehensive academic program serves 4,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Known for both their competence and character, SPU graduates are bringing about positive change in communities around the globe.
