Hello from the Community Service Learning Center! We will be hosting our annual Winter Volunteer Opportunities Fair on the Pew Campus on Wednesday, January 28, 2009 from 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. in the Loosemore Auditorium. There will be over 25 local, non-profit organizations covering a wide variety of possible service and/or internship opportunities for students.

We are asking that this message please be forwarded to all faculty and staff in your departments to share with students in their classes or students they work with. Attached is the poster for the event.

Thanks for helping us spread the word about this great opportunity for GVSU students!
