Spotlight on Service

(March 7, 2013) The Armstrong community started the month of March off like a lion with the sixth bi-annual Treasure Savannah day of service. Over 300 student, faculty, and staff volunteers braved a frigid late winter morning and fanned out across the city to give back. Twice a year, Treasure Savannah honors the university's rich history in Savannah by taking on community service projects across town.

Service projects for the Spring 2013 Treasure Savannah included work at the West Broad YMCA, Forsyth Park, Hunter Army Airfield, and Union Mission, among others. This year, Treasure Savannah teamed up with the City of Savannah and Keep Savannah Beautiful for the Great Savannah Cleanup to clean parks, sidewalks, and streets in the historic Cuyler-Brownsville neighborhood. In coordination with the national Great American Cleanup, the Great Savannah Cleanup kicks off a four-month campaign to clean up the city. Treasure Savannah volunteers provided a jump-start for the effort.

Armstrong's Liberty Center location in Hinesville also takes part in the day of service, in appreciation of their community as well. Volunteers from Liberty Center worked with Keep Liberty County Beautiful to beautify the grounds at the historic Flemington City Hall.

“This is Armstrong's way of saying thank you to the people of Liberty County,” said retired Col. Peter Hoffman, director of Liberty Center.
