About 200 Samford University students will fan out around Birmingham Saturday, March 27, for an afternoon of community service during “Samford Gives Back Day.”

Projects include cleaning and organizing at NorthStar ministries and the men’s Firehouse Shelter, playing games with senior citizens at Chateau Vestavia, and making Easter baskets with children at Pathways shelter. Students will also assist with construction and cleaning at two Habitat for Humanity house sites.

The effort is sponsored by the Samford Office of Student Involvement’s Community Service Council. Student leaders are Sarah Franklin, Amy Ingham, Matt Groves and Jordan Puryear.
