Service Days

Service Days are small-scale volunteer events such as trips to Elijah’s Promise Soup Kitchen, on-campus arts & crafts nights, and visits to senior citizen homes. These events can accommodate anywhere from 5-50 people depending upon the type of event. Due to limited number of volunteer spots available, pre-registration is required for most Service Days.

Here is a list of some of our upcoming service days.  This page will be continually updated as days are added to our calendar.
