Drop-In Days of Service

What are Drop-in Days of Service?

Drop-in Days of Service are on-campus opportunities for students to "drop in" and complete service projects for service hours. They are located on GVSU's Allendale Campus in Kirkhof Center (room numbers vary, please see below for more specific information). At these days of service, students will learn more about different Nonprofit Organizations and how they help the community around Grand Valley. Students will also be able to find good places to volunteer at in the future.

Be on the lookout for more Drop-in Days of Service hosted by various student organizations as well!
