Campus Federal Community Bound!For Immediate Release
Baton Rouge, LA -September 1, 2010
BATON ROUGE, La., On Saturday, August 21st, Campus Federal volunteers joined "hands" with over 500 LSU Faculty, Staff, Students and Community Volunteers for Community Bound 2010! At this year's event, volunteers divided between (15) area schools to paint, wash and perform other miscellaneous duties for the Baton Rouge area public schools.
In 2003, Dr. Granger Babcock launched LSU Community Bound as a service organization for incoming freshman and transfer students. The first project began in August 2003 with 45 volunteers, including LSU faculty, staff and students. Community Bound has continued to grow; this year over 450 volunteers cleaned up 15 public schools. Campus Federal has participated in Community Bound since 2007 and will continue to provide volunteers for this great service project to support the community.
Campus Federal applauds Volunteer LSU for fostering a community spirit, for highlighting the importance of volunteering and giving back to a community, and for allowing the credit union to support our mission, hand-in-hand with LSU our sponsor for more than seventy-five years.
