Looking for ways to get Involved this Term?
Join us for the Governor’s Food Drive and Winter Day of Service!
Throughout the month of February, ECOS’ Civic Engagement Program is organizing a number of activities and events as part of the 2018 Governor’s State Employees Food Drive. All food collected during the February food drive will be donated to SOU’s Student Food Pantry. All money donated will go directly to support food assistance programs at ACCESS, Jackson County’s regional affiliate of the Oregon Food Bank Network.
Join us throughout February in these opportunities to serve and donate!
Faculty/Staff Food Drive Department Competition Week 6 Feb. 12-16:
Campus faculty/staff units are invited to participate in a friendly competition to see which department can donate the most non-perishable goods to the Student Food Pantry. The department with the largest donation will receive a $50 gift certificate for coffee and treats courtesy of SOU Dining and University Housing.
