Service Project

The Walk the Walk Week Service Project invites you to give of your time and resources to address the immediate needs of the most vulnerable members of our community.

There are many ways to get involved! 


From November 6 through December 7, students in each residence hall are invited to donate funds to purchase supplies for basic hygiene and winter care kits to be distributed to local organizations. Student Government has assigned a fundraising goal for each hall based on number of residents. Off-campus students can donate via their former hall, and graduate and professional students have their own giving page and goal.  

Students will help to assemble the kits on Saturday, January 20, 2024, and the completed kits will be distributed to organizations throughout the local community.

Every $20 raised purchases one care kit. Donations of any size make an impact and are appreciated.
