SALT LAKE CITY — Students, faculty and community members are invited to participate in a variety of service projects on Thursday during the third annual Community Engagement Day at the University of Utah.
The day-long event will include volunteer opportunities at Red Butte Garden, collection drives, a walk-a-thon benefiting the Community Engagement Scholarship and a workshop to make toys and hats for children and hospitalized infants.
A number of environmental organizations will also gather at the Marriott Library Plaza for Earth Fest, which will include hands-on activities and live music.
“Community Engagement Day is symbolic of the deep connections made between the campus and the community all year,” said Linda Dunn, executive director the Lowell Bennion Community Service Center. “The day also helps generate ideas of how people can get more involved in the future.”
More information on Community Engagement Day can be found on the University of Utah website.
