Project Angelo to help with several community organizations
Project allows students to make connections in San Angelo
Project Angelo, a campus-wide community service program, is coming back to ASU for its fifth year on Thursday, March 27.
Volunteers will work with the organizations Helping Hands, Girl Scouts of Central Texas, and the NewBridge Family Shelter. They will help in projects including repainting Kids Kingdom, cleaning up the Concho River, and working at S.A.F.E. Recycling Center.
"Project Angelo is a group of people that will help clean up the community of San Angelo and make it a better living place," said Deven Leonard, freshman and Art and Film chairman for UCPC. "We are trying to [make] Project Angelo a new tradition not just for ASU but for San Angelo itself."
Helping Hands is a non-profit organization in San Angelo that fixes the homes of low-income elderly and makes their homes safer at no cost to the homeowner.
Girl Scouts of Central Texas is the top leadership organization for girls in kindergarten through 12th grade and continues to provide outcome-based opportunities for them.
The NewBridge Family Shelter focuses on improving the lives of victims of family violence through education and support.
"After the owners of locations contact UCPC, the student organizations on campus come together and decide as a group if they are willing to help," Leonard said.
Project Angelo will be held during Springfest, a three-day event that will have community service projects, comedy entertainment, live music and a crawfish boil.
Springfest is Wednesday, March 26, through Friday, March 28, in the pavilion area next to the cafeteria.
"Springfest is like a spring break vacation for students, but it is during the week of school," Leonard said. "We will have assorted [performing] artists, water games, blimps and live music."
Four acts have been set up for Springfest performances. Frangela, a female comedy duo, will make an appearance on Wednesday at the C.J. Davidson Center.
