Splash into Service

Splash

Each year as part of Week of Welcome, the Center for Leadership and Service, plans Splash into Service to give first-year students a taste of service at Agnes. Formerly known as Service Saturday, the day begins with a shared meal before students depart to their service locations. The day concludes with reflection on the day’s events and participants experiences. This event that brings together students, faculty, and staff to work together on several projects. Beginning the day with a shared meal, then departing to service sites, participants engage with the wider Metro Atlanta community and learn how they can make a difference.

Splash into Service for the 2018 will on Saturday, September 8. The focus of this year’s event is food and community partners are in the process of being finalized

Rise Against Hunger Meal Packaging Event

Every year, the Center for Leadership and Service hosts a Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now) Meal Packaging Event. Rise Against Hunger is "driven by the vision of a world without hunger. Their mission is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable and creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources." Rise Against Hunger takes the meals packaged at events like the one at Agnes Scott College and "distribute meals through feeding programs operated by partner organizations in developing countries that promote education, encourage children to attend school, improve students’ health and nutrition, address gender inequalities, stimulate economic growth, fight child labor, and are crucial to address global issues." 

The Rise Against Hunger Meal Packaging Event for 2018 is on November 16 at 7pm in Upper Evans. Sign-ups will be available on Scotties Serve
