Campus members who've already signed up for Case for Community Day projects should give themselves a round of applause: a registration record has been set.
Although there are still a couple of weeks left until Case for Community Day on Friday, September 25, all service projects are filled, according to Latisha James, director of the Center for Community Partnerships.
"What a wonderful display of the university's continued spirit to serve. This is the best registration effort we've had," says James. "It typically takes three weeks for projects to be filled, and we have done it in one week."
While all of the service projects have volunteers confirmed, campus community members who have not had an opportunity to register can still give back by donating to one of the numerous donation drives being held the same day. People are encouraged to donate unused personal computers and cell phones, bring in canned foods, clean out their piggybanks for the Pennies for Peace effort, or sign up to give blood at an American Red Cross Blood Drive.
All donation drives will be held in Thwing Center from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Learn more about the specific donation drives:
Blood donations are always needed to help during medical emergencies. An American Red Cross Blood drive will take place in Thwing Center's 1914 Lounge, as well as in Nord Hall 310 A and B. Pre-registration is required.
