On November 1, Ogeechee Technical College students and instructors from the Accounting, Business Administrative Technology, and Marketing programs, as well as the Phi Beta Lambda club donated their time and talents to the Habitat for Humanity Restore. The students were involved in a variety of tasks while giving their time. Some students helped price and sort items for sale as well as move items onto the sales floor, while others worked to rearrange items on the sales floor and shelves by using their visual merchandising skills. Many students helped customers find items in the store by utilizing the customer service skills they learned in class. While working at the Restore, students exhibited several of the work ethics characteristics they learn about in their respective programs. Through teamwork, organization, productivity, and cooperation, the students and instructors were able to make a big difference in the store and get a lot accomplished. “The Service Learning Project was extremely rewarding for both students and instructors. The staff at the Restore was very helpful and appreciative of the help from each of the students and instructors,” stated Marketing instructor, Jessica Sanders.
