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 firstname.lastname@example.org
This document will be updated when there are service opportunities on campus.
The Little Timmy Project
TLTP is partnering with Sullivan's Hardware PumpkinTown (Allisonville location) for the month of October. Patrons can pay $4 to paint a pumpkin and in return all proceeds go to TLTP. Well, they are desperately in need of volunteers- 10/13-10/31 to oversee the pumpkin decorating station and I thought this would be a great way for our students to earn service hours! Students can sign up to volunteer here: https://www.littletimmy.
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.
Midwest Food Bank
We are in great need of volunteers every Tuesday and Thursday from 8:15-2:30pm. This is our distribution day and since Covid we have grown quite a bit on these days. Our need is for students 14 years old and above to help with loading carts and vehicles for our agencies. We also have 4 hour shifts if you are unable to work a whole day. If you are available to volunteer, please email at email@example.com or call me at 317-786-8980. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank 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. Whatever your comfort level, we have ways for you to help your community.
St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry & Warehouse needs volunteers
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.
