Wednesday, March 27, is the last day to register for CSUnity.
Every spring, the Ram family comes together for a one-day service event that supports the Fort Collins community. These services include planting trees, outdoor spring clean-up and landscaping projects. The services are provided to long-term residents in the community, agencies and local nonprofits.
Nearly 2,000 volunteers will spread out through the Fort Collins community. Service projects tend to be coordinated by local neighbors and nonprofit organizations, as well as the City of Fort Collins, and other county, state, and federal agencies. A wide variety of community engagement opportunities within a four-hour or less span are available on this one-day service plunge.
CSUnity will take place on Saturday, April 13, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30p.m. To register click here. Registrations will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on March 27.
CSUnity is a program that creates a space where campus and community can come together and make connections and relationships.
Volunteers in the past have:
- Completed general yard work, landscaping and painting
- Contributed to building, grounds and equipment repair and maintenance
- Participated in trail building, and road and waterway clean-up
- Directly worked with clients and supported the identified mission of agencies and organizations
- Set up for events, and other provided other event support
Currently, CSUnity is in need of more service projects. Those who have personal connections in the local Fort Collins community with nonprofits/governmental agencies that might benefit from this program can direct them to csunity.colostate.edu to learn more and register.
“I have participated in every CSUnity event in my undergrad and graduate school years,” said Stephens. “And now I am leading this event for the first time. CSUnity is beneficial to both parties and that is our goal, to do no harm with quality service.”
