In honor of Make a Difference Day, five Flint area colleges and universities are hosting a joint effort to write cards and letters to U.S. military service members. Baker College of Flint, Davenport University, Kettering University, Mott Community College and University of Michigan-Flint are all participating. HandsOn Genesee, the volunteer center for Flint and Genesee County is providing support for the effort.
On Thursday, October 25, from 9am-4pm, each school will set up a table in a central area with supplies for students, staff and community members to write cards and letters to members of the U.S. military serving overseas. Volunteers will staff each site.
I grabbed this photo over the weekend during Art Walk in downtown Flint. The William S. White Building is UM-Flint’s newest academic building. The building, all 177,000 square feet of it, was completed in January 2002. White is home to a diverse set of disciplines from nursing to media production. (Photo by Jared Field)
