All College Month
This day enables CCRI students, faculty and staff to give back to the outside community and help those in need at nonprofit organizations around the state. All volunteers will receive a special commemorative T-shirt and lunch.
Past projects at other nonprofits across the state have included interior painting and cleaning; landscaping and outdoor beautification; inventory cataloging; sorting donated food and clothing; working with clients and more. The nonprofit agency identifies the projects, provides tools such as rakes, paint brushes and paint to complete the job, and decides the number of volunteers the site can accommodate, and the college provides an army of volunteers composed of students, staff and faculty to get the jobs done.
To accommodate our students’ and employees’ class and work schedules, the college offers morning and afternoon shifts, though many volunteers stay the entire day. CCRI also provides a site coordinator for each location to serve as liaison with the nonprofit, organize the shifts and supervise the volunteers.
If your nonprofit can accommodate at least 10 volunteers for a full day of work and you would be interested in being considered as a site for CCRI’s Community Service Day, please ask your executive director or chief administrative officer to complete this online form by March 6. A member of the Community Service Day committee will be in touch with all who apply.
