WACO - More than 2,000 Baylor Students were out and about the Waco area for service projects Saturday.
It was part of Baylor’s "Steppin' Out" Day.
Baylor students built a prayer garden, put on an Easter egg hunt, and took part in Keep Waco Beautiful projects.
At Tennyson Middle School, they painted lockers, helped organize the library, and took care of more extensive gardening. Laura Lilley, a Tennyson Middle School teacher talked about how nice it was for the students to help.
“Just to have a great group of Baylor students who don’t seem to have a stop button doing whatever they can to help,” she said.
The students said it’s all a part of keeping with Baylor’s mission.
Baylor Student Emma Beaird said part of being in a caring Christian community is investing the Waco community outside of Baylor.
“So we’re really glad that we’re able to pour into the local Waco community,” she said. “Get outside of Baylor and really serve in places that need service.”
The event's purpose is to enhance student awareness, interaction, and collaboration with the community.
Baylor Student Haley Fenn said Waco really supports the university, so it is really nice as a student to get to know the community.
