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.
