Maryville University is preparing for its third annual Maryville Reaches Out on Sept. 14. Registration is now open online for the campus wide day of service which brings together students, faculty and staff in an effort to reach out and engage with the St. Louis community and surrounding areas.
Last year, MRO had 901 participants providing 3529 hours of service. According to Kathy Quinn, associate dean of students, the hope for this year is to exceed those numbers by offering 1026 volunteer positions. MRO currently has 82 projects from which participants can choose to work, with more than 660 volunteers registered.
