Community Service Callouts

Service will look a little different this year. Students may  volunteer at multiple agencies beginning this year. While we still encourage students to volunteer at a main agency so they can truly understand the working of a service agency and form relationships with not only those they are serving but those running the agency. Animal Shelters are allowed, volunteering for elderly and sick neighbors, community clean ups, shoveling and yard work for elderly neighbors or family, tutoring in-person or via online will be allowed.

All hours must be recorded on the Mobileserve APP. It is the students responsibilities to make sure their hours are getting approved by the agency they volunteered with. Direct all service questions to service@gocathedral.com 

Service Opportunities on Campus

This document will be updated when there are service opportunities on campus.

Society of St. Vincent DePaul

As things slowly return to normal, we are in great need of volunteers. We couldn’t serve the community around us without the help of so many of you. So, please come help us—we need you.

NeighborLink is excited to be getting out and helping more homeowners this year! In addition to outdoor repairs, we’re planning on our return to indoor projects. This means, we need you and your friends to volunteer! Many of our projects require no-experience. Some of our smaller projects are better left to a DIY-confident volunteer.

SVdP is eager to welcome volunteers regularly to safely distribute food to our neighbors.

We have adapted our operations to prioritize the safety of volunteers and provide food to those in need while following public health guidelines. We need help packing food boxes, repackaging produce and meat, and loading boxes in cars. We can also use more volunteers at our Distribution Center sorting clothing donations. Won’t you please answer the call to help us love our neighbors during this unsettling time so no one goes hungry or without clothing or household goods? Sign up today: http://www.svdpindy.org/i-want-to-help/#time
