Rasmussen College celebrated its 5th Annual Community Service Day today.
In North Dakota, 40 Rasmussen College students and staff volunteer 110 hours.
Volunteers in Bismarck were busy assisting with office projects, yard work, and delivering food bags to elementary schools.
"We found the elementaries have a summer program going and we decided that was the best way to distribute the food so we've got two lunches, two dinners, and a dessert in each one of them so we can drop them off on Fridays and they'll have enough to eat over the weekend," says Stacey Koehly, Admin Finance Coordinator for United Way.
All of Rasmussen's campuses across the Midwest and Florida participate every year.
This year, the college anticipates more than 1,400 employees and students will give more than 4,200 hours of service.
"Our communities do a lot for us. We, you know, love being a part of our communities, the students and all of the people that kind of make us proud to be a part of those communities so it's a day for us to give back to them," says Janelle Knudson, Manager of Student Records, Rasmussen College.
Rasmussen College has been recognized nationally for its volunteerism and assisting various organizations.
