CANTON, Mo. | Although Culver-Stockton College students were confined to campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they helped out a pair of Hannibal agencies with service projects last weekend.
C-SC students traditionally begin their first week of school with Everyone Doing More events.
Among their projects on Saturday, August 22, were painting rocks for the Child Center Inc. in Hannibal and making dog toys out of T-shirts for the Northeast Missouri Humane Society in Hannibal; Students also painted rocks and wrote letters to kindergarten students in the Canton R-V School District; labeled and packaged masks for the Canton District; filled snack baskets and wrote thank-you letters for Canton and on-campus First Responders; created face masks for a C-SC alum who has been donating face masks; and recorded videos as they read children's books for the Canton Public Library.
They also were painting guardrails on the C-SC campus; making tie blankets for the North Central Missouri chapter of Project Linus, a nonprofit organization that provides homemade blankets to children in need; and creating educational videos on mental health, responsible drinking and social responsibility.
First-year students, transfer students and Wildcat Welcome leaders totaling nearly 330 participated in the EDM event and were supervised by C-SC faculty and staff.
