JUNE 26, 2018

TIFTON – Have a project coming up but need a few extra hands to get the job done?  The faculty, staff, and students at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College are hosting the first ever Day of Service on Aug. 14 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. to give back to the Tifton community.

Bernice Hughes, Dean of Students, said ABAC is currently seeking community partners to be on the receiving end of its free service.  Churches, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and individuals may submit project requests to:

The organization or person in need of help must supply all materials and equipment needed, and ABAC will provide the people power to get the job done. The project submission deadline is July 24. Community partners will be notified regarding project selection by July 31.

“We would like to offer as many service sites as possible but will give preference to sites that can accommodate 20 or more volunteers,” Hughes said. “We strongly encourage our partners to provide a rain plan as a backup option.”

For more information, interested persons can contact Hughes at or call 229-391-5130.
