MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Nearly 1,000 students from West Virginia University in Morgantown are expected to take part in service projects at 26 sites around the city this weekend.

The university says the students are members of university sororities and fraternities. They will take part Saturday in the Greek Day of Service organized by university student Blake Humphrey, who came up with the idea for a large-scale day of service.

The 26 sites include a Habitat for Humanity house, trail and natural area cleanups, bike repairs, car wash benefit and awareness campaign work.

The students will work from noon to 3 p.m., and their efforts can count toward the Million Hour Match initiative, which challenges WVU students and West Virginia residents to each complete 1 million hours of service by 2018.
