SVSU Students Construct Playground Equipment for local Child Care Center

A group of Saginaw Valley State University students will devote a summer Saturday to a service project, as they build and install playground equipment at Great Beginnings Christian Childcare Center in Saginaw County’s Kochville Township. Work will begin at 10 a.m. this Saturday, July 25 and continue until the project is completed.

The students are members of Alpha Phi Omega, a national coed service fraternity. The SVSU chapter has more than 40 members, and event organizer Anna Nowak, an elementary education major from Garden City, expects more than a dozen students to participate Saturday, as well as a few alumni.

SVSU students selected Great Beginnings after learning of the facility’s needs from two of the chapter’s advisers. Mike Major, director of Career Services, and Bob Tuttle, professor of mechanical engineering, both use the center for their children.
