  • Shift 1: 8:30am-11:30am - Reach Out (Shift 1 volunteers cannot be dismissed until shift 2 volunteers arrive at 11:30am). Then serve with Students for Sustainability On-Campus Garden until 2pm.

Students volunteering with Campus Ministry's Reach Out initiative will be socializing with members of Austin's homeless population hosted by St. Ignatius Church. This service project includes mingling, playing games, and ushering guests to the available stations. The stations include a clothing/shoe donation, haircuts, job applications, snacks/toiletries station, lunch, free music and showers. Volunteers are asked to be present and interactive with guests, making the experience as welcoming as possible. 

Volunteers will also help improve Student for Sustainability's campus garden 
by building a raised bed, trimming hedges, and other general yard work. 

**Closed-toe shoes and pants are recommended.
