into the streets 2018Hundreds of University of Alabama at Birmingham students will fan out across the city Saturday, March 24, for a day of service.

Into the Streets is a biannual program sponsored by the UAB Leadership and Service Council that connects UAB students with various service projects throughout the Birmingham community. Students come together to help the university accomplish its mission of encouraging partnerships that improve education, health, economic prosperity and quality of life.

This spring, parents and siblings are invited to participate alongside their student as part of a partnership with the UAB Office of Parent and Family Services, and they will take part in the same cleanup activities as other volunteers. From 9 a.m.-noon, parents will contribute to the cleanup on Mulga Loop Road (505 Mulga Loop Road, Mulga, 35118). In the event of rain, parents will help with the Magic City Cycliad. After volunteering, families will then get the chance to cheer on the UAB Baseball team in the game against Louisiana Tech.

Between 400 and 500 volunteers are also expected at sites including Christian Service Mission, Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Magic City Cycliad, Urban Ministries, Moss Rock Preserve, Ronald McDonald House, UAB Gardens, South Haven Rehabilitation Center, Glen Iris community cleanup, Boys and Girls Club, and Ruffner Mountain.
