Community Day Spring 2014

The College of St. Scholastica Community Day
Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Our spring Community Day will differ from previous years. Students in the Dignitas program will again be preparing and delivering meals to the hungry in our community. However other activities are changed. The Feed My Starving Children event, lobbying at the state legislature, and the senior assessment will not be held this year. We will be having volunteer opportunities, especially with elementary schools for “I Love to Read Month”.

Dignitas students and faculty are preparing food, raising money, publicizing the event and delivering the Thanksgiving in the Spring meal to people in need in our community.

Faculty, staff and students are invited to register for volunteer activities of the day listed below. Elementary school kids are eager for the opportunity to read with college students! After registration is closed, you will be contacted by a volunteer group leader about travel plans and details for your site.
