Day of Service
Community and civic engagement is at the core of Columbus State’s strategic agenda. While College staff, faculty, and students continually interact and support the community in many different ways, our annual Day of Service event provides a large-scale demonstration of the College’s commitment to service.
The September 2018 Day of Service marked the College’s largest participation to date, with more than 900 members of the Columbus State community, including 342 students, volunteering at more than 90 locations around Central Ohio. Past volunteer sites have included Life Care Alliance, Mid-Ohio Foodbank, Goodwill, Ronald McDonald House, and Habitat for Humanity.
Day of Service provides an average of nearly 2,500 volunteer hours each year, with an estimated total collective financial benefit of $75,000 for the non-profit agencies where the work has been performed. It's also a great opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to give back and make meaningful connections. Watch the video below to hear some of the 2018 volunteers reflect on Day of Service.
The 2019 Day of Service will take place on Tuesday, September 24. Interested in partnering with us for the next Day of Service? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
