Once a month, work with 10-12 fellow students on a service project with a local nonprofit organization. Each service project is student-led, and addresses a different social issue. After each service outing, you and your group members will discuss the experience over a meal.
Saturday, Sept. 26: Friendship Gardens
Friendship Gardens is a network of community gardens that shares their harvest for the benefit of Friendship Trays, an organization that provides more than 750 meals per day to members of our community with little access to healthy food. Volunteers assist on a local garden with planting, harvesting, and general maintenance needs.
Saturday, Oct. 24: Crisis Assistance Ministry
Crisis Assistance Ministry provides assistance and advocacy for people in financial crisis, helping them move toward self-sufficiency. Volunteers help with the stocking, sorting, and inspecting of donated items before given to families in need.
Saturday, Nov. 7: Our Towns Habitat for Humanity ReStore
The Our Towns Habitat for Humanity ReStore supports the Habitat for Humanity mission of building homes, communities, and hope. They do this through collecting and re-selling gently used items to the local community. Volunteers assist with a reorganization project helping increase efficiency at the warehouse.
Register for a Service Saturday by the Wednesday before the service day.
