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.

Mobile Food Distribution

HandsOn Kansas State will host a mobile food distribution in conjunction with Harvesters Community Food Network of Topeka on Friday, February 12 in parking lot C-1 of the Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex. The mobile food distribution is open to anyone in the Manhattan community with fresh fruits and vegetables offered at no cost. The distribution will take place from 4-6 PM.
