Virginia Tech is asking students, alumni, faculty and staff to donate 600,000 hours of community service to honor those who were injured or killed in the April 16th shootings.
The effort, called VT Engage, is set to kick off next Tuesday on the campus drill field. Organizations will offer information about volunteering
opportunities at the event.
School officials say similar events will take place at Virginia Tech's other centers across the state and in Switzerland.
Student, faculty and staff are being challenged to donate 300,000 hours of community service or 10 hours per person by April 16th. The alumni association is challenging graduates to do the same.
