PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s Morrow Hall residents are hosting their annual Morrow Hall Works Week from April 9-11, in which resident assistants organize community service events.

On Wednesday, April 10, from 3-5 p.m., students will visit residents at Manor Care in Platteville, Wis., where they will spend time talking and playing games.

A service auction is planned for Thursday, April 11 at 7 p.m. All funds raised will be donated to Andrew Bottrell, a local veteran and a triple amputee who is in need of a service dog. This event will be open to anyone who would like to attend and will be held in the Morrow Hall basement. Auction items were donated by Milios, Jimmy Johns, Pioneer Lanes, Kwik Trip, Panera Bread and Dominos, and others.

The works week will conclude on Friday, April 11. At 6 p.m., students will make the campus and surrounding area a better place by picking up trash. Volunteers will be given Dairy Queen Dilly Bars as a sweet treat to end the night.

Donated goods from the community including baked goods, hand-crafted items and coupons for helpful services to offer others are also welcome for the auction. There will be blank coupon slips that can be filled out if attendees would like to donate something while at the auction.

“I really think it’s important to reach out and show that we are helping and getting students aware,” said Kathryn Peck, Morrow Hall resident assistant. “We know it’s important to give back to the community and we want students to know that those who benefit from our help appreciate what we’re doing.”

Anyone interested in donating auction items may contact Peck at (608) 342-3200 or e-mail peck@uwplatt.edu.
