CFCC Service Learning Fair exposes students to charitable causes and opportunities

Cape Fear Community College students recently found out about a wide variety of volunteer opportunities in the local area at the CFCC Service Learning Fair on Wed., Jan. 23 at the downtown Wilmington Campus.
The CFCC service learning program was developed to combine academic studies with volunteer efforts.
According service learning coordinator Kate Santhuff, the program provides students a way to give back to their community, enhance their overall learning experience and earn college credit.
“Participating students should make a connection between their course studies and their service learning, all while making their own communities a better place to live,” Santhuff said.
The event featured dozens of area organizations and was held in recognition of the 2013 Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service. The fair was held from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the first floor of the Health Sciences building.
