Taking place the first Monday of each month, in partnership with multiple campus partners, this regular service opportunity allows students to give back once a month. This enables students who don't have the time or resources to serve in other ways to still contribute to community organizations. Projects are usually hands-on and involve making something.
Student volunteers for this event will be working together in different Breakout Groups via Zoom with our Community Partner, Big Shoulders Fund, to record themselves reading children's books that will be then uploaded upon completion for students within inner-city schools to enjoy on the Big Shoulders Fund e-learning website. The last 30 minutes will be used to create cards at home either physically with materials and mailing them or completing a no-contact drop-off, or digitally make cards to send online. These will be motivational cards to staff, pen pal letters to students, and/or congratulation cards to graduating 8th-grade students and high school seniors. Please drop in at any time throughout the day.
