Service Saturday

Service Saturdays

Service Saturday is a monthly service day where volunteers can choose from a range of service sites. With your transportation and lunch provided, you'll enjoy your service even more!

 

Register for Service Saturday

It's important that you register for Service Saturday so we have an accurate head count for transportation and lunch. Check back soon for fall dates and registration information!

 

 

Service Saturday Schedule

8:30 a.m. Choose where you serve begins (Meet at Davis Field)
9 a.m. Buses will depart at the Horseshoe
9:30 a.m. Volunteers arrive at service sites
12:30 p.m. Volunteers arrive back on-campus for lunch (approximate)

 

You Choose Where You Serve

Service site sign-ups begin at 8:30 a.m. on the day of service. Just show up and select your preferred site. If you would like to serve as a group, all group members must pre-register individually online. Plan to arrive early and together for registration on the morning of Service Saturday. In order to make site selection fair for all students who participate, we WILL NOT reserve sites or hold spots for a group. Arriving early and together makes it more likely that your group will be able to find a site that accommodates your size. 

If you are under the age of 18 and would like to participate in Service Saturday, please have your parent or guardian sign this Service Saturday Waiver [pdf]. You can bring the signed form the day-of, or email it to Carly Zerr at (zerrcarl@mailbox.sc.edu) in advance.
