(Seguin) -- Texas Lutheran University has formally invited the Seguin City Council to participate in this year's Day of the Dogs event. TLU students use the day to tackle several service projects across the city.

Seguin Public Information Officer Jennifer Sourdellia recently delivered the request to the council. She says that Day of the Dogs is all about the university's students giving back to the community.

"TLU Spring Day of Service, the Day of the Dogs is an annual day of service where about 400 students volunteer at two dozen non-profit organizations in the Seguin area. This year's event will be Saturday, March 2 from 8 a.m. to noon. Day of the Dogs has been a TLU tradition for over 10 years and counting and they hope the community groups in Seguin area will join them in making this year's Day of Service a success," said Sourdellia.

Councilwoman Fonda Mathis, who works for TLU, says that Day of the Dogs makes a difference in Seguin, and she says that's one of the reasons why she hopes that her fellow council members and others will join the students on March 2.

"There's a project in each of your districts. Email Morgan. Let her know you want to come out. Let her know you want to participate and join in and show the students who are volunteering to our community that we are there to support them and we are there to be with them," said Mathis.

TLU hosts two community service days for its students each year. The Day of the Dogs is held each spring, and the Hot Dog Day of Service is held at the beginning of each fall semester.

Volunteers can support the cause by joining students during the event on March 2. Those interested in serving must register for the event by sending an email to Registration is open through Thursday, Feb. 28.
