Earth Day is Thursday, and southwest Georgia is already thinking green.
Albany State University held its "Go Green Week" kickoff worship service Sunday morning. This year's theme is Project Planetâ"Earth, Body, and Soul. The university will hold "green games" Tuesday, and a "Go Green" forum Wednesday. All the events lead up to Earth Day on Thursday.
"This year we're focusing on physical health on that day," said William Wright, ASU's Manager of Community Development in Housing and Residence Life. "We're having a blood drive in conjunction with the American Red Cross. We've gotten in contact with Phoebe's Network of Trust, and we have different people coming out to do HIV tests."
"Go Green Week" will conclude at Albany State on Friday with Campus Beautification Day.
