Stockton Day of Service

Kimberly Bodine, a senior Communications major from Fort Dix, plants dune grass along Maine Avenue in Atlantic City during The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey's 10th annual Day of Service.

Nearly 300 volunteers took part in 14 Atlantic City community projects today through The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey’s 10th annual “Day of Service.”

The event, in partnership with the city and the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, involved students, faculty and staff in various improvement projects from registering residents to vote to planting dune grass.

“Our Fall Day of Service really kicks off, in a significant way, the College’s civic engagement activities which go on throughout the year,” Stockton President Herman Saatkamp said, in a written statement. “These are the kinds of activities which make me most proud to be president.”

Volunteers have traditionally been dispatched to various off-campus projects, but this is the first year it focused on one municipality. Other projects included support for the DO AC Boardwalk Art Show, Miss America preparations and a barbeque cookout for seniors at the Shore Park Tenant Association.
