Students and the community have a opportunity to volunteer for the second annual Paint-A-Thon scheduled for Sept. 29 and organized by Fort Hays State University Tigers in Service and Hays Rotary Club.

Two houses in Hays have been selected to be painted. Volunteers can sign up for one of two shifts, 8 a.m. to noon or 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Volunteers have the option to put together teams within organizations.

"We seek applications from people in the community," said Greg Sund, Hays Rotary Club president-elect and Ellis County administrator. "We review the applications and have people do an on-site visit to learn the condition of the homes and whether this program is the appropriate solution."

"The Rotary Club has two missions. One is community improvement through programs like this and education programs for children and adults. The other is an International mission to encourage clubs to form relationships with Rotarians in other parts of the world to complete improvement projects throughout the world," Sund said.

Applications to volunteer are due Friday. For more information, call (785) 628-5537 or email service@fhsu.edu.
