Center for Civic Engagement

Holiday Giving Projects

December 3 – 11, 2016

Are you looking for something special to give a family member or friend for the holidays? Leave the gift cards at the store this holiday season, and instead give a gift of service.

By participating in one of the CCE's Holiday Giving Projects, students can receive a certificate stating that they have participated in a community service project in honor of the gift recipient. This is a great way to give a meaningful, personal gift to your loved ones while supporting local community organizations. Give the gift of service this season with the CCE!

Students must register for these projects on CougSync to reserve a space. Students who participate in these projects will earn civic engagement hours on CougSync as well as a certificate. Service hours are not transferable to another student.
