CBU's September of Service is the perfect way to get your daily dose of service activities in September. CBU will host a different service project each day in September, allowing you and your friends to get out and serve the community while having fun!
CBU S.O.S. – September of Service: 30 Days of Good Deeds is an exciting service initiative at Christian Brothers University. It is designed to give CBU students, faculty, staff, Brothers and alumni a different opportunity to serve the Memphis community every day in September. Don't worry, you don't have to participate every day, just pick your favorite!
Please note, we strongly discourage students from missing class to participate in S.O.S. We want you to volunteer, but we also want you to succeed academically!!
By putting CBU’s Lasallian values of faith, service, and community into action, CBU’s S.O.S. benefits Memphis agencies and the clients they serve. At the same time we will become more aware of the needs in Memphis and how we can directly have a positive impact on our community. It is truly a “win-win.” To learn more about each S.O.S. agency, click on its logo on the sign up page.
New for 2013: ROGUE SOSing!! This year we are adding a new dimension to S.O.S. If you can't join us for one of our scheduled service projects, we welcome you to don your S.O.S. shirt, serve your community (wherever you are in the world), and post your good deed (including a picture) to our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/SeptemberofService. Don't have an S.O.S. shirt? Make a sign! Don't have a sign? S.O.S. anyway!!!!
Join us for the S.O.S. Kickoff on Friday, August 30, 2013 from 11am to 2pm in the Buckman Quad. We'll have signups, refreshments, DJ John Dawson, "Why I Serve" signs, and other S.O.S. fun!
Through our "Why I Serve" signs, at every project participants will have the opportunity to express why they are serving. They will also earn a chance for door prizes to be given away at the S.O.S. finale at noon on Saturday, October 5, 2013 on CBU's campus. (Must be present to win.)
Join in the service, join in the fun. It's time to sign up for September of Service: 30 Days of Good Deeds! Remember, if you sign up we are counting on you so please be sure you can commit to the project before you sign up! Participants will sign CBU and agency release forms before leaving CBU for the project.
Please note: Your S.O.S. team members are not professionals. We want to provide an outstanding service opportunity for everyone, but we ask for your patience if problems arise.
