INTO THE STREETS
September 14th & 15th
Into the Streets is an annual program offering hundreds of Missouri State University students to go into the Springfield community and help out at local agencies, non-profits, and other places of need. Through this program, students will learn about a non-profit agency, find out ways to continue to be involved, and help serve the community.
What is a better way to spend a weekend than making friends, volunteering, and making a difference in the lives of others?
