ROCKFORD (WREX)- Friday’s heat didn’t stop a local college from giving back to the Rockford community.
Rasmussen College held its annual Community Service Day. Employees from the college’s campuses across the country, including here in Rockford, took part in the event.
The Rockford Campus teamed up with the YMCA of the Rock River Valley. Employees from the college spent the day cleaning different places like the SwedishAmerican Riverfront YMCA.
“I think for us, it is a good collaboration in the community,” said Craig Steege, The Rockford Campus Director. “People [are] proud of where they work, proud of the community they live in, and a way for us to see the community that we serve.”
Friday was Rasmussen’s 11th Community Service Day.
