Are you or your student organization looking for ways to volunteer in the community?
Please see below for opportunities that are happening soon.
Freshmen Move In
Help Lamar University Students move in! Sign up today to be a volunteer on August 24th.
Park Build Day
Help us put kids first in Port Arthur by creating a new place for kids to play with the City of Port Arthur! This project is in partnership with the Rebuild Texas Fund and KaBOOM! the national non-profit dedicated to giving kids the childhood they deserve through great, safe places to play.
8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Saturday, September 8
Build Day is part of an effort to rebuild and restore 35 community playspaces impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Safe places to play are critical to helping kids and communities heal following a disaster, as they deal with the stress of lost homes, lost loved ones, lost schools and lost routines. This playground will help kids and communities continue to regain a sense of normalcy and make play an easier choice for families during this time of need. For more information and volunteer sign up visit this website.
Gift of Life
The Gift of Life is looking for as many committed people as possible to assist us in our 5k Ribbon Run (aka Color Run) on Saturday October the 6th this Fall!!!
This assistance can be provided through actual participation in the Run, by creating a team and fundraising around campus on our behalf, or just through good old fashion volunteering on the day of the Ribbon Run. Anything the you or your organization can do in your power is greatly appreciated by the Gift of Life. Visit and learn more here.
