The CVSL is a great place to get involved, give back to the community, and meet new friends on campus. Their office is located on the ground floor of the Union in WG28 and they have many different opportunities available.
Food Pantry – Every Tuesday and Thursday the CVSL staffs the Hope House Food Pantry from 12:00pm-2:45pm. Transportation is provided and you can sign up to go for one day or the whole semester.
Hunger Task Force Stockbox Build – Help feed seniors by building boxes of healthy food to deliver to low-income seniors for free. This event takes place on November 8 from 8:30am-12:30pm and transportation is provided.
RAKathon – This is a campus-wide volunteer event that takes place on November 3rd and involves helping older adults winterize their homes and cleaning up the neighborhood. Taylor and I will be putting together a team to volunteer, so let us know if you want on it!
There are many other events listed on the CVSL website with information on how to sign up! Volunteering is a great way to build character and it looks great on a resume. If you have any free time, I definitely recommend checking out the Center for Volunteerism and Student Leadership and giving something back to the community!
