Continuing a volunteer initiative launched in celebration of the College’s 80th Anniversary in 2010—and in support of the National Day of Service inspired by the life of Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.—Art Center is proud to bring back “Art Center Takes Action: A Day of Service in Pasadena”.
“Art Center Takes Action: A Day of Service in Pasadena” will kick-off at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 18 on the rooftop of the College’s South Campus. Volunteers will have breakfast with College leaders and representatives from participating organizations. From there, teams of Art Center volunteers will grab a boxed lunch and be dispatched to locations around the city to take on such tasks as collecting food, facilities improvement, environmental clean-up, beautification projects and special activities.
The local organizations that Art Center volunteers will engage with this year include: AIDS Service Center, which develops and delivers services, advocacy and education tailored to improve the quality of life for those impacted by and at risk for HIV/AIDS; Arroyo Seco Foundation, which promotes the preservation and promotion of one of Southern California’s greatest natural treasures; The Boys & Girls Clubs of Pasadena, whose goal is to improve the lives of children by helping them build self-assurance and develop leadership skills while reinforcing positive values; and Villa Gardens Retirement Community, a premier retirement community steeped in tradition, culture, caring and a love of life.
Students, faculty, staff, alumni, supporters, friends and family are all encouraged to volunteer. Sign-up now using the online registration form to volunteer with your organization of choice or visit the CSE office at Hillside Campus to sign-up in person.
