Sponsorship

The fifth annual Community & Campus Day of Service will take place on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at Memorial Stadium. This year for The Food Packaging Project we will be packaging 150,000 meals to benefit Eastern Illinois Foodbank, representing one thousand meals for each year of public engagement between the University and the community since 1867. The Day of Service will be an early celebration of National Volunteer Week from April 23-29. At the end of the month, Austin's Day will provide additional opportunities for volunteering in the local community.

Last year, approximately 1,650 volunteers contributed 3,275 total estimated volunteer hours during the 2016 Community & Campus Day of Service/National Volunteer Week!
