SOS Volunteers

We ended up not having a volunteer activity for November, so we are trying to make up for that by having a couple in December.

First up though is a little get together! We don't have meetings every month anymore, so we thought it would be nice to have a Potluck on 12/8 in the Munroe building. Bring any dish you like and share with others. Bring the family, because we‟ll have babysitting supported by the DMU Peds club.

We‟re working with the Homeless Camp Outreach to help bring stockings full of much needed supplies to homeless people downtown. We need people to stuff the stockings on 12/9, and to bring them downtown on 12/12. The Outreach program is a great club with both DMU students and faculty involved.

Then on 12/16, we'll be doing a Feed the Students event at DMU in the atrium. Just like last time, we ask people to signup to bring a dish they are willing to give to hungry students. We timed this specifically to coincide with busy exam schedules. For those who participated in the last one, we'll remember that students are just as voracious with their thanks as they are with their appetites. They absolutely love us for this, and really aren‟t we all here to support our students anyway?

We‟ve sent out email about all of these events, so you should find them in your inbox. Please reply to that email or send one to and let us know what you would like to participate in. We really need you to help out, and if you have suggestions for more volunteer activities or for how to make these events more relevant to you, then let us know!
