Coe Cares: Family Weekend Service Project
Each year over 100 students and family members are invited and encouraged to give two hour sof service. Following a continental breakfast, families set out to serve Cedar Rapids. Groups have done landscaping at newly built Habitat for Humanity homes and planting trees at the campground at Squaw Creek Park on National Public Lands Day, in conjunction with Trees Forever.
Constitution Day: 9/17
A representative from the League of Women Voters will be outside of the "U" to register students to vote.
Day of Service: 9/11
A national movement launched in 2003 to establish 9/11 as a national day of kindness, service and reflection by volunteering, helping others in need, or doing something good for your community. In 2009 and 2011, Coe College adopted soldiers and troops in Iraq. Student, faculty, and staff created care packages for our troops. In 2010, students, faculty, and staff worked on a "Go Blue Campaign" to bring light to the oil spill in the Golf Coast and helped clean up our local beaches.
This year students and staff will be encouraged to write letters to the troops. Service Leaders from the Office of Service Learning will be on Gage Patio on 9/11 from 11am-1pm with paper and writing utensils!
