Covington, La. – The men of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity at Spring Hill College volunteered at Clearwater Wildlife Sanctuary during the weekend of March 7. The charitable organization hand-raises and rehabilitates injured, orphaned or abandoned animals.

The students aided the wildlife sanctuary by clearing a wooded area and constructing a fence. The fence will protect an injured infant deer from predators while the sanctuary nurses it back to health before reintroducing it to the wild.

“I wanted to make it known that we are very grateful for the amount of time and dedication these young men put forth with an incredible demonstration of character,” said Cindy Taylor, wildlife rehabilitation manager at the sanctuary. “I was truly amazed at how tirelessly they worked and how respectful and compassionate they were toward our cause.”

Lambda Chi’s service reflects the annual theme at Spring Hill College, “Renew the Face of the Earth.” For more information about this project, contact the Office of Student Affairs at (251) 380-3023.
