Earth Day was on April 22 and the University of Northwestern Ohio’s Rotaract Club did its part to celebrate and protect the planet by hosting Campus Clean-Up Day.

The Rotaract Club is focused on serving UNOH’s campus community in addition to Lima and greater Allen County. The students focus on serving all of our communities to give back and support everyone around as needed.

The Campus Clean-Up event invited UNOH students, faculty, and staff to come together on Earth Day to give the campus some TLC. Volunteers were provided trash bags and gloves, and they got busy making campus look fresher while making a positive impact on the environment.

“My favorite part of giving back through Rotaract is that it allows me to be a part of something bigger than myself,” Rotaract member, Ally Cumming, stated. “This past March, we did a clothing drive where we donated a huge amount of clothing items to the Lima Salvation Army. This event allowed me to give back through an organization that will put things in the hands of those who need them. Giving back through Rotaract just overall gives me a great feeling of accomplishment, knowing I am contributing to something that is focused on giving a helping hand to those within my community.”

Not only is Rotaract Club giving back to the community, but it is also bringing the community together for a better tomorrow. “The best part about bringing our campus together to serve a better cause is to not only celebrate Earth Day but celebrate the beautiful campus we have here at UNOH and brighten it up as best we can for everyone to see,” Ally said. “Racers take pride in everything gifted to us at UNOH, and our beautiful campus is just one of those gifts.”
