NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Students from Tennessee State University are partnering with the American Red Cross to perform acts of community service this week.

On Friday, they will help install smoke detectors in homes around north Nashville.

The students spent Monday hanging flyers in the area to give residents notice they will be performing the service free of charge.

“At TSU, our mantra is think, work, serve. So we just want to make sure that we’re exposing students to the community, and community service,” said project coordinatorTequila Johnson.

“That we’re giving students the opportunity to go forth and think, work and service.”

TSU received a grant to make this project possible.
