Morningside College goes ‘Into the Streets’ for day of service in Siouxland

Sep 19, 2019

Sioux City, IA – Around 800 Morningside College students, faculty, staff, and alumni will spend a day giving back to Siouxland for the 13th “Into the Streets,” Morningside’s annual community service event, on Wednesday, October 2.

Organized by Morningside’s chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa, a national leadership honor society, “Into the Streets” provides an opportunity for the Morningside community to volunteer at more than 60 different locations throughout Siouxland including Voices for Food, Morningside Elementary, LaunchPAD, and City of Sioux City - Environmental Services.

This is the second year that alumni have been invited to participate in “Into the Streets.” Several local companies have even offered paid time off to employees to encourage them to get involved, making “Into the Streets” a true community event. This year, “Into the Streets” utilized VolunteerSiouxland to assist with coordinating participating organizations and tracking service hours and impact on the community.

Volunteers will meet with their groups at Eppley Auditorium on the Morningside campus before heading into the community to help local businesses and non-profits. Service work will include cleaning, gardening, working with elementary school students, and much more.

Morningside students Abby Koch and Tim Sibbel coordinated this year’s “Into the Streets” alongside a student committee that includes Alex Homan, Alison Wright, Carson Cameron, Emily Thompson, Grace Nordquist, Jory Opp, Kailyn Robert, Kali Hill, Kalynn Manker, Kenny Osten, Leah Erdman, Macie More, Mari Pizzini, Rashmi Krishna, Sara Larson, Tessa Renze, and Zach Imig.
