CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., March 28, 2003 - The Greek community at Southeast Missouri State University will kick off Greek Week 2003 April 5 with a community-wide service day.

Several events are planned for Saturday's community service day including, a car wash at Rhodes 101 stations on Sprigg and William from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and a food drive collection at Food Giant from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Members of the Greek community also will participate in the city's annual Friends of the Park cleanup at several local parks and will volunteer at a dance at Fountainbleau Nursing Home from 1 to 3 p.m. and bingo from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Food and money raised via these events will benefit the United Way, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Cape Girardeau Fire Department and Special Olympics.
