Dartmouth’s Season of Service

Due to the pandemic, Dartmouth did not have a Day of Service in 2020. This year, in an effort to promote service, but recognizing there still are limitations, the College is designating the month of May as a “Season of Service”. Everyone is encouraged to serve their community in a way that is comfortable and follows local community guidelines. Individual events, virtual events, group events are all possibilities.

Dartmouth suggests wearing “Dartmouth swag” while serving, snapping a photo and sharing photos at #DartmouthServes or emailing photos and relevant info to alumni.day.of.service.@dartmouth.edu.

Prior years, DAASV has helped out at Second Harvest Food Bank, one of the largest food banks in the U.S. Second Harvest is still in need of volunteers (as well as monetary donations), although it is only having individual sign-ups at this time.

We have identified a few days and times that might work for multiple Dartmouth volunteers:

  • Food sort at Cypress Center in San Jose on Wednesday, May 12 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
  • Food distribution at Palo Alto Community Child Care Center on Tuesday, May 11 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.
  • Food distribution at Mountain View Senior Center Tuesday, May 25 from 7:30 to 10:30 am.

Sign-up for one of these (or find more options) on the Second Harvest website.  Or come up with a service project of your own!

Just be sure to let events@daasv.org know what you are doing so we can celebrate your service.
