Looking for opportunities to give back and volunteer in our community? Service Saturdays make it easy because they provide easily accessible volunteer opportunities to the university community with the help of charitable and non-profit agencies.
This Service Saturday is the last of the semester, so don’t miss your chance to participate. You can volunteer for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, preparing participation packets for the May 13 race. Susan G. Komen is a foundation dedicated to combating breast cancer at every front. Up to 75 percent of the foundation’s income is put toward grants for local hospitals and community organizations that provide education, breast cancer screening, and treatment programs for medically underserved women.
According to the organization’s website, “The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Series is the world’s largest, most successful fundraising and education event for breast cancer. The race series includes more than 140 events on four continents, with over one million participants coming together every year to take part in the fight against breast cancer.” You can learn more about Susan G. Komen here.
Perks for you:
- Serve your community through civic engagement and public commitment
- Meet other participants who share the same passion
- Build leadership skills through volunteering and service
- A free breakfast
Other volunteer opportunities that were offered this semester include projects for the Agency for New Americans and the Idaho Youth Ranch. The last Service Saturday event had a turnout of around 40 participants. Get involved and make a difference! We make it easy.
