OU Day of Service
11/13/2013, 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM
"OU Day of Service" is this Wednesday, November 13, from 9:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. in the Gold Rooms of the Oakland Center.

Please consider stopping by for 15 minutes, a half hour, or longer to participate in OU Day of Service!  There are multiple service projects that OU students, faculty and staff can participate in to assist non-profit organizations like The American Red Cross, Kids' Food Basket, Arts and Scraps, and Beyond Basics.  There will also be “words of encouragement” and “appreciation” letter-writing campaigns for children who are in the hospital, Red Cross volunteers, and our military personnel (in honor of Veterans Day). 

OU's American Red Cross Club, Student Veterans of Oakland University, and The American Red Cross are collaborating to collect new or gently used clothing items for the VA Hospital in Ann Arbor for our homeless veterans.  The following new or gently used items are needed: long sleeve shirts, new socks/underwear, shoes, gloves, scarves, blue jeans, and toiletries.  Also, consider dropping off a non-perishable canned food item to make Thanksgiving Day baskets for the less fortunate in Pontiac.  All the canned food items will be donated to the Lighthouse of Oakland County.  You can drop off your donations in the Gold Rooms of the Oakland Center.

OU Day of Service is being coordinated through the Leadership and Volunteer Center in the Center for Student Activities.  For more information about OU Day of Service, go to www.oakland.edu/csa.

It's the start of the holiday season, so, if you can, give generously to those less fortunate and to honor our veterans.
