'Doing Our Neighbor Good:' New program offers more community service opportunities

November 19, 2012  |  By Mitzi Bible/Liberty University News Service

A new program is allowing Liberty University students, faculty, and staff to meet the immediate needs of their neighbors.

The Community Care Initiative launched at the beginning of the Fall 2012 semester, and already more than 35 projects have been completed throughout the Lynchburg area. These include housekeeping and yard work for the elderly and disabled, painting at the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center, a building blitz with Habitat for Humanity, a mosaic wall for the children’s museum, cleaning up local parks, and visiting nursing homes. More than 1,200 “hours of care” have been recorded since September.

The initiative’s motto is based on James 2:18: “Demonstrating Our Faith by Doing Our Neighbor Good.”
