HandsOn Kansas State
HandsOn Kansas State promotes civic learning and leadership through meaningful volunteer and service opportunities between campus and community. HandsOn strives to develop socially responsible citizens knowledgeably equipped for active participation.
Annually, HandsOn creates and implements specific Days of Services to heighten civic awareness. Our 9/11 Day of Service is a mobile food distribution in conjunction with Harvester's of Topeka; over 250 hungry family/individuals attended in 2013 to receive nutritious, fresh produce. As the resource center for all people service-minded, HandsOn Student Program Coordinators are available to sit down one-on-one to discuss interests, assist in finding organization contacts, and any other service-learning training needed to establish your volunteer opportunity. Student groups looking to understand volunteer management are also eligible to receive training for the improvement of their service events.
9/11 Day of Service: September 13
The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of efforts originally launched in 2002 by the 9/11 nonprofit MyGoodDeed with wide support by the 9/11 community and leading national service organizations. This effort first established the inspiring tradition of engaging in charitable service on 9/11 as an annual and forward-looking tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks. Locally, HandsOn Kansas State is sponsoring a variety of service activities around the city on the morning Sep. 13, 2014. To sign-up, visit http://bit.ly/HOKS_signup
