Week of Nov. 2

Any opportunity listed on this website can be used to meet the honors college volunteer requirement.

If you’re looking for an off-campus opportunity, Volunteer Kalamazoo is always a wonderful resource.

Steinem Reception
Help! Muscle needed to help move some small tables from Miller Auditorium to the Richmond Center Friday, Nov. 6 at 4 p.m. and then back to Miller at 7 p.m. If you can help at either or both of these times, please email jane.baas@wmich.edu. If you can assist at both times you will be allowed entrance to the Steinem reception. Please and thank you! Volunteer credit available or you can just do it because you feel sorry for your “senior” associate dean!

Kalamazoo Drop-In Child Care Center (KDCCC)
The KDCCC is a non-profit organization that offers free, part-time childcare for income eligible families. KDCCC gives parents time to search for employment or housing, keep necessary appointments, go to school, or take a healthy break from the demands of parenting. Volunteers assist the staff in the daily operation of the childcare and are needed to allow KDCCC to operate up to our full capacity. The Kalamazoo Drop-In Child Care Center is located in the basement of the First Congregational Church, UCC at 345 W. Michigan Ave., right on the corner of Park St. and Michigan Ave. Learn more with this flier.
