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.

Volunteers Needed for Mobile Food Distribution 

In collaboration with Harvesters, join HandsOn K-State on Tuesday, March 31 as they continue to address the “hidden hunger” on college campuses by providing a food distribution on K-State's campus each semester. Volunteers will be needed to unload, sort, and distribute food from Harvesters to over 200 households. Volunteers are needed from 3-7 PM in the parking lot of the pool at Manhattan City Park.
