    CHENEY, Washington - Eastern Washington University faculty, staff and students - many of them new to campus - started the 2017 academic year by giving back to the community on Tuesday, Sept. 19, during the annual Eagle UP volunteer effort.

    In all, more than 120 volunteers from Eastern provided a total of 366 hours cleaning, planting and organizing, equaling nearly $11,000 worth of services.

    Various projects included offering services to local parks, community centers and shelters in Cheney and the greater Spokane area. Volunteers also assisted seniors at Cheney Care Center, helped with gardening and cleaning at the Washington State Veterans Cemetery in Medical Lake, and provided assistance at Spokane's East Central Community Center and Catholic Charities Furniture Bank.

    Eagle UP is part of the EWU Office of Community Engagement's Eagle Volunteers! Program for students, which strives to produce transformative experiences and cultivate leaders who are engaged in their communities.

    Other volunteer efforts this school year will include Harvest Fest, the MLK Day of Service and JustSERVE Alternative Spring Break.
