The Warner University faculty is participating in a day long service project through the Lake Wales Care Center. The “Warner Cares” event was conceived to create an experience in which the faculty, as a community is immersed in the Lake Wales community to help serve where needed. Ultimately, the hope is to eventually have a “Warner Cares” day for the entire campus community (faculty, staff and students) committing a day of service to Lake Wales.
The “Warner Cares” title was the brainchild of Rob Quam, director of the Lake Wales Care Center and Warner alum. To help make the group “identifiable,” faculty will be wearing “highlighter yellow” T-shirts with a logo combining Warner and Care Center identities. The activities will start at 9 a.m. on May 13, with the faculty breaking into groups to work on a variety of projects. At noon, they will come together with the Care Center volunteers for lunch and a time of devotion. After lunch they will return to their service projects, concluding with a debriefing and fellowship time around 3 p.m.
