Spirit of Service (In-Person): March 15-April 15, 2021

As we continue to maintain social distance, we will have a few sites that will be in person. These sites will provide outdoor activities with maintaining social distancing. Please be responsible and still wear masks if working with others. Spirit of Service Day has been modified and extended throughout the month of March and April! To help meet your needs and those of our community, virtual and in-person volunteer opportunities have been identified. Simply select the service opportunity that interests you and fits your schedule. 

Staying connected through services, one compassionate act at a time! Please tag #CSMService and send pictures and a brief one-liner or caption of your picture, and you could see your photo on CSM's Facebook page!

Each time students volunteer, your name will be put into a drawing for 1 of 4 $25 gift cards!  You will be asked to fill out a short survey at the end of Spirit of Service!  Thanks for taking time to help others and live out the CSM mission!
