July 19, 2010 — More than 40 people from both Cleveland Chiropractic College campuses joined together June 21-25 in a spirit of kindness for the 2nd Annual Christian A. Cleveland Memorial Week of Service
Participants completed a variety of community service projects during the week, helping others while honoring the memory of Christian A. Cleveland, son of Dr. Carl and Elizabeth Cleveland.
Clevelanders assisted a group or organization of their choosing, traveling to off-campus locales to lend support in a variety of capacities. Whether it was assisting children, helping animals in a shelter or providing meals for those in need, each activity exhibited a selflessness that was the hallmark of the entire week.
Dale Marrant, director of human resources for the College, helped coordinate the annual service outing. He summarized the overall spirit of the weeklong event by reflecting on the importance of representing the college through volunteer efforts.
“As members of the Cleveland Chiropractic College community, we are called by our mission to volunteer our services to civic and professional organizations,” Marrant said.
“The Christian Ashworth Cleveland Memorial Week of Service provides our staff, faculty and students yet another opportunity to fulfill this mission while at the same time paying tribute to the memory of our friend and colleague, Christian Ashworth Cleveland. I look forward to seeing this event continue annually and increasing participation so that more within our communities might benefit.”
The organizations that received help during the “Week of Service” include: American Diabetes Tour De Cure, Bethel SDA Church, Catholic Charities, Habitat for Humanity, Half Way Home Pets, Harvesters, Heart N Hand Ministries, Heartland Community Church, IndianCreek Community Church, Mission Adelante, Ronald McDonald House. Braille Institute of America and Hope Net Food Pantry.
