Trinity students give back to SA community

Hundreds of students, faculty members gather for day of community service

SAN ANTONIO - Students from Trinity University gave back to their community Saturday.

Around 500 students and faculty members got together Saturday morning for a day of community service to honor the inauguration of Trinity's 19th president, Danny Anderson.

The group spread out around the city, raking leaves and even doing some clean up at Lamar Elementary School. They also helped organizations like the San Antonio Food Bank, Haven for Hope and Any Baby Can.

"This is part of what's in the DNA of Trinity, to give back to the city of San Antonio," Anderson said. "It's a wonderful way to show how we're connected to each other as a community and we're of a single mind to give back to the city where we're located."

According to the university, around 80 percent of Trinity students commit more than 100,000 hours to community service each year.
