Treasure Savannah: Armstrong comes together for day of service.
On the morning of Saturday March 1, 350 students, faculty, staff and alumni gathered on the steps of Armstrong's Student Union to kick off Treasure Savannah, Armstrong's bi-annual day of service. Unified in matching maroon Treasure Savannah t-shirts, the volunteers left in waves to work at eight different locations throughout Savannah.
“We just wanted to come out and do some really good service work today,” said Armstrong senior Katherine Field.
Katherine and her fellow Alpha Phi Omega sister Katy McKena decided to volunteer at the Girl Scout Camp Low.
“I grew up here in Savannah and have been coming to Camp Low since I was young, so I kind of have a personal attachment to this,” said Katy. “Service really is where it's at.”
In addition to the Girl Scout Camp, Treasure Savannah volunteers also helped out at the Savannah-Chatham Animal Shelter, Union Mission Grace House Kitchen, West Broad Street YMCA, Forsyth Park and a local homeless camp.
