Good Neighbors

One Saturday last fall, several hundred Moravian students got up early in the morning and made their way to the borders of campus. There, under team leaders, they passed out trash bags, work gloves, and rakes. Then they scattered across the neighborhoods around the College. In two hours, they had stuffed dozens of bags with dry leaves and trash, leaving our neighbors’ yards neat and ready for winter. Many hands made light work of the kind of chores that homeowners dread. By late morning, Deborah Evans, director of constituent relations, packed up the last of the bags and looked forward to improvement in town-gown relations.
