Carson-Newman community bands together for ninth annual Operation Inasmuch

(Sept. 29, 2014) – On Saturday, Sept. 27, over 630 members of the Carson-Newman community took part in the University’s ninth annual Operation Inasmuch service blitz. During the half-day event, teams of students, faculty and staff traveled throughout the region to join in service projects. The turnout was the largest in Carson-Newman’s nine-year history since implementing the program.

The day’s service sites involved areas in Jefferson, Hamblen, and Knox counties. These locations included The Boys & Girls Club of Dumplin Valley and Morristown, Jefferson County Habitat for Humanity, ALPS Adult Day Care Center, area churches, and Knoxville’s non-profits Random Acts of Flowers and SEEED.

Since becoming the first college or university to host an Operation Inasmuch event in 2006, Carson-Newman University has established an annual Day of Service. Carson-Newman teams of students, faculty and staff reach out across the region to accomplish a number of projects that “give back” to the community. The program’s names stems from Matthew 25:40, where Jesus says: “Inasmuch as you serve the least of these, you serve me.”
