Service Opportunities

SOL (Source of Light) - Local Service Opportunities
SOL

We are all called by God to serve our sisters and brothers who may be poor, hungry, or lonely. We are also called to share our gifts and blessings through meaningful service that reflects our faith. Official dates and times will vary throughout the semester but the Sign Up Link listed above will be updated on a regular basis with the official times/dates!

The following list is a list of the organizations we hope to work with on a regular basis and the times of the week/day that we will normally go. Again, for official dates, please view the signup link above!

If you feel interested in one in particular, please email Jake DeMarais at jdemarais@lewisu.edu to get more information!
