Could You Use 50 Volunteers?

Dear Friends and Community Partners,

If you are in need of 50 volunteers from Drake University for 2 hours on August 19th, don’t miss this opportunity:

Drake University Looking for Service Projects for First-Year Students Drake University is looking for volunteer opportunities in the Drake neighborhood and surrounding area that will engage first year students during their first weekend on campus. If you are a community organization that has a service need, Drake wants to hear from you.

Groups will be divided into 50 students apiece. Each service project is expected to engage these 50 students in two hours of service. The service site should be within walking distance of the university. Drake is also offering space on campus to host service projects.

Welcome Weekend community service will take place on Friday, August 19th between the hours of ­­­­ 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM.  There is a need for 16 to 20 different projects. In years past, students have volunteered for Meals for the Heartland, Des Moines Parks and Recreations, and United Way of Central lowa. This year, organizers want to engage students in the surrounding community as much as possible.

If you do not have a service need, please forward this on to others who may.
