WINONA, Minn. — The Saint Mary’s University Volunteer Mentors are encouraging individuals, organizations, and churches in Winona to submit requests for the annual Lasallian Day of Service event on Saturday, Oct. 27.

Lasallian Day of Service was started by Saint Mary’s University as a day for students and alumni to volunteer in their communities — in the spirit of the Lasallian mission of service to others. Volunteers will be available from 9 a.m. to noon on Oct. 27, to help with fall cleaning, raking leaves, painting, or other chores. Saint Mary’s will supply the workers, if you supply the materials needed (paint, brushes, rakes, tools, etc.).

Requests must be made by Wednesday, Oct. 24, to Kirsten Rotz the Office of Campus Ministry at Saint Mary’s at or 507-457-7329. In your email request, please include description of work, address of location, and estimated time it will take to complete with three students.

Besides Winona, Saint Mary’s alumni will also be volunteering in the Twin Cities, Chicago, and New York City as part of Lasallian Day of Service.
