This Saturday, May 18th, marks the annual OSU Community Day of Service, where Beavers across the nation will show their Beaver Nation spirit and volunteer in their communities. Brian Collins, a volunteer in Washington, D.C. said:
In addition to helping with many important community needs, Day of Service is a chance for Beaver alumni to reconnect with their fellow Oregon Staters wherever they live.
There are many projects that will be happening on Saturday across the nation. Included in those projects is a joint project between OSU and UO, where student athletes from both universities will be working on a Habitat for Humanity Build in Philomath, OR. Other projects include clean-ups at a zoo, working with foster care homes, trail clean-ups and working on community parks.
OSU alumni and friends can still register to participate this Saturday. Day of Service projects will be taking place from 9:00am to 12:00 noon in various locations across Oregon (Portland, Corvallis, Albany, Roseburg, Oakland, Eugene, Salem, Stayton, Dallas, Newberg, Newport, Bend, and Bandon) and across the nation in California, Washington State, Idaho, and Washington, D.C.
