Join In, Help Out on Community Service Day, Sept. 30
The first of two Community Service Days this semester will be
held on Saturday, Sept. 30. Participants may choose from a wide
variety of three- to six-hour community service projects either
on- or off-campus, including activities ranging from environmental
work to activities with seniors. Transportation is provided
to most work sites. To learn more about Community Service Day,
see the ads in the Daily Campus, call the Center for Community
Outreach at (860) 486-1165. If you
wish to register with a group of people, it is best to call
the office first to check on specific site availability, as
some sites fill up quickly. Community Service Days are a good
opportunity to get involved in a short-term project and see
what service programs are available.
