Most community service projects are aimed at helping a single group or cause at a time. At the First Annual Black Student Union Day of Service, however, volunteers will be able to help five area locations simultaneously.
Open to members of all organizations interested in “joining the fun and helping make a difference in the Tampa Bay community,” the day of service will take place on Saturday, Sept. 30 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.. This special day is designed to help out the community in various ways, and, as volunteers will be helping out at five area locations, including Ronald McDonald House, Boys and Girls Club and Metropolitan Ministries, is “also a great way to meet new people.” Many areas of work are available, such as arts and crafts, clean-up, construction and more.
For the event, volunteers should wear a t-shirt or an item of clothing representing their organization. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for all volunteers.
Any interested organization members in making a difference, just fill out a registration form in the P.E.A.C.E. office, or send information to BSU@ut.edu.
