Ten teams of university students are volunteering today and tomorrow as part of Serve San Marcos’ Texas State Student Service Rally.

Organized by students in a course called “Marketing for Social Change” at the McCoy College of Business Administration, the volunteers are undertaking projects that include working community food pantries at Centro Esperanza Community Center in Redwood and the Hays County Food Bank in San Marcos; planting a garden at Community Action Inc. of Central Texas’s senior center; and distributing pet care flyers at the Prevent-a-Litter of Central Texas animal shelter in Kyle.

Other projects include tending Central Texas Medical Center’s Creation Health Garden; working San Marcos CISD’s Rattler Clothing Closet; doing landscaping and cleanup in downtown San Marcos; painting wheelchair ramps at homes participating in a CTMC service project; repairing flood-damaged homes as part of the St. Bernard Project; and participating in Keep San Marcos Beautiful’s Great Texas River Cleanup.

Serve San Marcos operates under First United Methodist Church’s tax-exempt, nonprofit status with additional donations from McCoy’s Building Supply and Central Texas Medical Center.
