EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Students, alumni and employees of Michigan State University participate in community service projects in the U.S., Asia and Middle East.

The Global Day of Service , is part of a year-round initiative called “Spartans Will. Serve.” In addition to projects across the U.S., there are five international sites: four in China and one in Egypt.

Efforts include helping the homeless, participating in food drives and forest restoration, as well as cleanup efforts along highways, in parks and natural areas.

Organizers say the number of international projects has grown along with the alumni base of the East Lansing school.
