UMW News BureauThe Montana Western Campus Corps begins their year with a recycling project and food drive. Instilling the idea of service and community is the goal of the University of Montana Western Campus Corps. Affiliated with AmeriCorps, Campus Corps places students from 19 Montana campuses with community agencies, non-profit organizations, schools and health care facilities to address Montana’s most challenging problems. Jonathan Stephani, a literature and writing major at UMW, is the new Campus Corps team leader at Montana Western. Stephani organizes campus and community service activities for 34 student volunteers. Stephani will also work with Montana Western faculty in providing learning service resources and how they relate to different areas of the school’s curriculum. Each student volunteer will be responsible for 300 hours of service over the course of the academic school year. When the student reaches 300 hours, they are eligible for an education stipend of $1,000. The first project is a recycling pickup and food drive scheduled for Sept. 11, 2009, the National Day of Service and Remembrance. The pickup area is limited to within Dillon city limits. Residential recycling items to be picked up include glass, plastic, aluminum, paper, cardboard and steel. There will be two pickup times for recycling or food donations: 8 to 10 a.m. for locations west of Atlantic Street and 1 to 3 p.m. for locations east of Atlantic Street. In addition to Friday's activities, Montana Western Associate Professor of History, Philosophy and Social Sciences Sean Eudaily will give a keynote address in front of the Student Union Building at 11:30 a.m. For more information or to arrange for a pickup, call Jonathan Stephani at (406) 683-7202.
