Students serving at Cradle Beach 

On Thursday, September 30, all students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in our campus-wide Franciscan Day of Caring. 

This day is an important opportunity for Hilbert volunteers to see and understand the impact and importance of service, as well as take action to promote equality, justice, respect and compassion.  Hilbert College will be partnering with nearly a various community partners committed to serving and strengthening our community through their mission and work.

Volunteers are asked to dress appropriately for the work that they will be performing.  Pants, jeans or knee-length shorts and closed-toe, sturdy shoes (such as sneakers) are required.  So that we can best accommodate all participants, please sign-up by Thursday, September 23rd.   

Group meeting times for the service opportunities vary based on the needs of our community partners and the projects the volunteers will be assisting with.  Please make note of the meeting time and location when signing up for your service opportunity.

If you are a non-profit or community organization who would like to partner with Hilbert College for future service opportunities, please reach out to Rachel Wozniak at rwozniak@hilbert.edu.
