Alabama A&M University will harness the collective energy of hundreds of freshmen, upperclassmen, and community volunteers for its Day of Service scheduled Saturday, April 21, 2018.   Activities will launch at 7 a.m. from The Quad and conclude around 3 p.m.  See SIGN-UP links below.

 

This year, AAMU is leading the massive effort, which began as a project first organized by area churches.  In 2017, AAMU served as the first hub for north Huntsville.  On April 21, campus and community volunteers will gather for a university-wide send-off.  Campus buses will then drive them throughout the community to churches, agencies, and neighborhoods that requested help.

 

Previous projects have included:

 

·         Home Maintenance and Repair

·         Yard Work

·         AGENCY Opportunities: Hope Place, National Children’s Advocacy Center

          305 Eighth St., Manna House, Food Bank, Red Cross, CASA

·         Packing Goody Baskets

·         Lakewood and other school projects

·         Neighborhood cleanups

·         Letter Writing campaign to local Veteran’s

·         Voter registration drives

 

“This is a great way for students to experience first-hand the impact just a few hours of their time can make,” says Monica Clarke, coordinator of AAMU’s Service and Volunteerism program.
