In Announcements, by , on April 20th, 2021

“Spring into Service” continues with Giving Wednesday! Activities of the day focus on giving back to our community, including:

Campus Ministry Blanket Making: This service opportunity encourages our students to make blankets that will be sent to children at Oishei Children’s Hospital. Supplies will be distributed outside of the Gallagher Center between 12 – 2 PM, or from the Campus Ministry office from 2-4 PM. Supplies are limited and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. Please return completed blankets and supplies back to Campus Ministry by Monday, April 26, 2021.

Hygiene Bags: Help to package hygiene bags that will be distributed to local organizations who serve those most in need in our community. A table will be located outside of the Gallagher Center from 12 – 2 PM, while supplies last.

Birthday Card Making: Take time to make Birthday Cards for the clients of Meals on Wheels and Feedmore WNY. A table will be located outside of the Gallagher Center from 12 – 2 PM, while supplies last.

T-Shirt Bags for Community Missions: With the plastic bag ban, organizations like Community Missions are looking for creative ways to distribute food to their patrons. This is where T-shirt bags come in! T-shirts will be located in the Multipurpose Room in the Gallagher Center from 6 – 8 PM. Any students who choose take-and-make should return completed T-shirts to IMPACT in ACAD 125 on Monday, April 26, 2021. Sign Up Here.

Don’t forget – if you are participating in an act of service during National Volunteer Week share your service using #NUSpringIntoService on social media or visiting to report what you did. More information about the week’s events can also be found on the website.

Activities of the week are made possible through a partnership between IMPACT, the Levesque Institute, Campus Ministry, NUSGA, the Brennan Center, and Active Minds. A special thank you to Campus Activities for incorporating service opportunities into RidgeFest events!
