A total of 745 volunteers served in Arkadelphia on Saturday, Sept. 24, as part of Ouachita Baptist University’s 39th Tiger Serve Day.
The semi-annual community service event is hosted by the Ben M. Elrod Center for Family and Community. Tiger Serve Day began in the spring of 1997 in the aftermath of a devastating tornado that hit Arkadelphia and has been held every semester since. This year’s Tiger Serve Day projects, marking the event’s 20th anniversary, celebrated its beginnings with the retro theme of “Into the Streets.”
