Pacific’s Volunteer Center offers variety of July events

Jul 2, 2020

The Pacific Volunteer Center has an active July planned, all via Instagram Live. 

“Our student leaders want to continue their involvement and they are hosting how-to events (through the ‘Create to Donate’ series) that encourage folks to learn a skill or project and transfer that new knowledge into a donation to a local community partner” said Marylou Bagus-Hansen, assistant director of the Volunteer Center (formerly the Center for Community Involvement). “Speakers are also sharing how their own volunteer work has informed their careers and passions.
