All Campus Opportunities
Random acts of Kindness teams

Join a team that wants to do just that - do a "random act of kindness" for someone in our community!  Get notified via email of a need and if you have the time and/or resources to "act", then go for it!  

Examples of "random acts" include donating a box of food to a single parent or senior, sending a note of encouragement to someone in the hospital, or collecting blankets for our homeless community.  We also share last-minute "shout-outs" when local non-profits are short on volunteers.
