Thank you for trying to help those that have been affected by the recent Hurricanes. When a disaster like Hurricane Florence happens, it can take months and even years for communities to rebuild. To make the most of your efforts to help, consider these tips for donating and volunteering.
Bulldogs Making a Difference
Heifer International is an Arkansas-based non-profit organization focused on community development to resolve poverty and hunger around the world. The Global Village is a hands-on educational experience where students are challenged to live in modeled developing world conditions. They are given problems to solve—including how to gather enough food for the day—and are required to engage their team-work and problem-solving skills to overcome challenges.
Want to lead a group of students on Service Dawgs Day? Gain leadership experience while giving back to the local community by leading a group of students, faculty, and staff volunteers to complete one of 35 community service projects during the 2018 Service Dawgs Day on August 20th. Site Leaders serve as the main point of contact for all volunteer teams. Site Leaders also help ensure all volunteer projects are completed and that volunteers are engaged throughout their service experience.
Come join 600+ new friends at the 9th annual Service DAWGS Day!
SDDService DAWGS Day is an annual day of service that engages over 600 volunteers in community service activities within the local community. On Service DAWGS Day, students and volunteers arrive at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore for a brief orientation and light breakfast before being transported to one of over 30 community partner locations to perform 2.5 hours of community service. Just before lunchtime, students are transported back to campus for lunch and other activities.
