As part of the community service project required during their second year, 88 students at CUNA Management School's class of 2005 were bussed up to Marshall, Wis., to paint the homes of three elderly and disabled individuals as part of Project Home's Dane County Paint-A-Thon. After they arrived, they discovered that one of the homeowners was not only in need of an exterior paint job, but she also desperately needed new siding to replace an extremely weathered-and in some places rotting-exterior. Knowing the homeowner was on a fixed income and would not be able to afford the new siding for years, the students started a pledge drive amongst themselves and, by day's end, had collected more than $4,000 in pledges to pay for the new siding.
