Mass Impact - Day of Service
“Mass Impact” is a day where UMass students, faculty, staff, and alumni come together to serve the local community through volunteering at various project sites. Community needs are identified in advance and projects are established to address these needs.There are many different projects that will appeal to many different interests.
“Mass Impact” is being held on Saturday, September 28th, 2013. Check-in begins at 9am on the Haigis Mall in front of the Fine Arts Center. Volunteers will be at the sites from 10:00AM-1:00PM, transportation will be provided to and from the sites, and lunch will be provided upon return to campus during closing remarks.
Volunteers are encouraged to register using our Database at www.umass.edu/volunteer - Individual volunteers must register for the event, and if interested in volunteering as a team, please note the team/group name during registration.
