Grove City College, in conjunction with the Office of Alumni and College Relations, will host the 2nd annual service day on Saturday, Nov. 7. Alumni, students and friends in the Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Philadelphia areas are being asked to take a few hours and serve their communities together.
Launched in November 2014, Grove City College Serves is an annual day of service when Grove City College alumni, friends and students give back to their local communities. The 2015 project sites include the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, Hosanna Industries, Light of Life and World Vision in Pittsburgh, Impact! Thrift in Philadelphia and the Hattie Larlham Center in Cleveland.
Each project will have a staff or alumni project leader. Contact information for the project leaders, who will make participants aware of any last minute details, will be provided as the event gets closer. Participants are asked to wear Grove City College gear and post their pictures online using the hashtag #gccserves.
To get involved and to register, visit www.alumni.gcc.edu/gccserves to view a list of local projects and choose one based on interest and availability. Please take note of any special volunteer requirements.
Because these charitable organizations count on registration to be accurate, those who register are asked to firmly commit to the day of service. The registration deadline is Saturday, Oct. 31 at midnight.
