STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – It was a day of service for more than 500 hundred MSU students today. The Maroon Volunteer Center organized the event, with students serving all over the Golden Triangle.

The Annual “Service Dawgs Day” kicked off this morning with a welcome from MSU President Mark Keenum. Several organizations including the Starkville Public Library, Noxubee Refuge and the Palmer Home Stores got help from the volunteers. Students at the Palmer Home in Starkville helped to clear old clothing from the racks and tag clothing for sale.

“Volunteering is just important in general because I think that it helps the community as a whole when people go out and they’re willing to offer their time and their services for free for the betterment of the community,” says Niah Jamerson with the Maroon Volunteer Center.

MSU students volunteered at 30 work sites throughout the Golden Triangle.
