SNU Freshmen Serve OKC

Over 480 freshmen, transfer students and sponsors from Southern Nazarene University (SNU) will join efforts together in serving the Oklahoma City Community on Tuesday morning, August 21, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The 13 scheduled locations where SNU students will serve include – Love Links, Reaching Our City, The Children’s Center, Bethany Public Schools, Feed the Children, Goodwill Industries 2, Lifehouse, The City Rescue Mission, OKC Compassion, Ronald McDonald House, SNU Horse Ranch, Stinchcomb, and Goodwill Industries.

“Love Links ministries operate with a very limited number of paid staff. We are built on the use of volunteers. Groups such as this enable us to function as an organization. We are grateful for the SNU students’ work,” said Dr. Howard Culbertson, Garner Chair of Missions, Associate Professor of Missions at SNU and Chairman of the Board at Love Links Ministries.

The annual service project day is a part of SNU’s 21st New Student Institute (NSI), a five-day orientation program designed for new freshmen and transfer students to assist with the transition into the university setting and help them feel at home on campus and in the community.

“At first, I personally found NSI intimidating. However, it forced me to realize what SNU had for me as a student. The service project day was my favorite event of NSI,” said Anthony DiFabio, SNU Senior and President of the Student Government Association.
