Paper, markers, and other craft supplies will be provided.

Spring 2019 Recap

Community Service had a fun and successful semester. We started the semester by seving high school students by volunteering at the annual Capital Science and Engineering Fair. This fair is a great opportunity for high school students to showcase their research projects that they have been working on over the past year. Community Service also hosted the annual Spring COE Blood Drive. With the help of SWE volunteers, we were able to help the Red Cross collect 45 donations. These 45 donations will go on to help save up to 135 lives! Another fun event that we were involved in was the Senior Center Breakfast. Our volunteers woke up bright and early to cook and serve breakfast to the seniors of Madison. Finally, we served local hospitals by making homemade card that were sent out to hospitalized kids to bring them some happiness this spring!
