News Apr 03, 2017 by Mark Newman Hamilton Mountain News

Mohawk College students will be fanning out across the city on Saturday to lend a helping hand to a number of organizations during the second annual A Better Community Day event.

“It’s to inspire students to take action and to understand that improving their community is not always about a financial contribution,” said Kyle Datzkiw, president of the Mohawk Students’ Association who will be wrapping up his term of office at the end of the month.

Last year, about 100 Mohawk students took part and this year Datzkiw figures 200 or more students and community supporters will come out to help their partners including Food4Kids, The Escarpment Project, Eva Rothwell Centre, Habitat for Humanity, the Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club and the community garden at Mohawk College.

“We will be planting about 20 trees in the orchard on campus (near the Braley athletic centre),” Datzkiw said.

The day begins with registration at 10 a.m. at The Arnie (MSA lounge) at the Fennell campus followed by a pep rally before the students head out to one of the community projects.

Datzkiw said the community is welcome to take part in the free event.
