UCF will be giving back to the community for a full day from 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 28, through 10 a.m. Sunday, March 1.

Led by Volunteer UCF, UCF’s inaugural Day and Knight of Service will offer students and members of the community six 4-hour shifts to volunteer for 21 organizations that address a combined 12 social issues.

“This is a great and unique opportunity for us as a community to come together and help make a difference,” said VUCF student director Todd Currie. “We are hoping that this event can become a staple in our spring semester programming for years to come.”

The first 12 hours of service will be on campus at Lake Claire, and food and entertainment will be provided as students move among different volunteering opportunities. Four-hour shifts to follow will move volunteers to different sites throughout the community, and then activities will return to campus.

Students have the option of volunteering by themselves or in a team. Awards will be given at the end of the event for categories such as team attendance, most spirited team and total service hours contributed.
