Cove Haven Cemetery needs a friend — and the College of Health Sciences is trying to provide as many as possible.

The site, located at 984 Whitney Ave., was established in 1907 and is a historic black cemetery with a proud tradition of serving the local community. But due to the volunteer nature of how it is run, it needs help with upkeep and general beautification.

On Oct. 16, dozens of volunteers from CHS came out to help.
