“The students will spend about three hours doing such things as visiting elderly residents, raking leaves for low-income populations, and learning about social justice issues affecting our community around us,” says Tom Nemcek, Xavier senior and Community Action Day co-director. In all, the students are visiting about 15 agencies and organizations. The students return to Xavier about 12:30 p.m. for lunch and a discussion of local social justice issues.
This semester's Community Action Day is sponsored by Recruiting Services International, Ltd., a recruiting firm in Cincinnati whose owners are Xavier alums. Paul Wehner, senior RSI recruiter and Xavier Class of 1969 alumnus, is the main contributor for the event.
