Multi-city OSU Community Day of Service
On May 17, alumni and friends of OSU took the community service spirit of Beaver Nation to the streets and made a difference. A group in Idaho visited with and assisted veterans at the Idaho State Veterans Home, Beavers in Cottage Grove, Oregon volunteered at Harrison Elementary School and in the Portland, Oregon area alone there were nine projects! These are just examples of the great work alumni and friends of OSU did in their communities over the weekend. We thank you!

Want to lead a project on May 16, 2015?
The most successful projects are ones where there is a personal connection to the site and the lead volunteer. That connection leads to a drive to make a difference and that drive inspires others to participate.
That day, not only are you helping to make a difference in your community and improving a favorite park or helping out a community service organization, Beavers reconnect, network, find leads for jobs and start long-lasting relationships not only with each other, but with that project site. Memories are created and shared. One volunteer in Sitka, Alaska, kept her group entertained with stories of the “old days” on campus as they cleaned, cataloged and reorganized items at the Sitka Sound Science Center during the 2014 OSU Community Day of Service. It’s that Beaver spirit that keeps alumni coming back year after year - they love it and our communities love it.
