Last Saturday morning, 824 students (and a few eager Samford employees) climbed out of bed early to gather at Seibert Stadium before departing throughout Birmingham for "Samford Gives Back," sponsored by our Mann Center for Ethics and Leadership. Working with 33 charities, they gave almost 3,300 hours in service. As icing on the cake, a group of Samford alums joined the effort. The day was a living example of the challenge of Christ to love our neighbors.
The world is better because Samford people understanding that life is empty without serving others.
