HARRISONBURG -- James Madison University faculty and students gave back to the community on Tuesday as part of the school's day of service. This comes during the university president's inauguration week.

JMU President Jonathan Alger started the day at a local day care center, where he and his wife played with the kids.

Students also helped. One group set up a booth to make cards for recipients of Meals on Wheels.

Scott Jackman, one of the students involved in the day's activities, said it's important that JMU interacts with the surrounding community.

"It shows that there is part of this town that isn't JMU. You know, there are people out there that are having difficulties with their every day lives, and we're just trying to give back and do what we can," he said.

JMU students and faculty volunteered their time at various other charities around town.
