One-Day Service or Volunteer Opportunities

We offer one-day or short-term volunteer opportunities to students and employees. To accommodate students and staff with limited availability, we have created the following calendar of one-day / short term volunteer opportunities throughout the year. In addition to the College’s numerous long-term service partnerships with area nonprofits and businesses, there are many local organizations in need of Holy Cross volunteers for one-day service projects (road races/walks, playground cleanups, etc.) in the community. Opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to get involved in such events are posted below.

If you are available to volunteer at one or more of the following events, please contact the event organizers directly to confirm your participation. 

For additional information contact Sue Hunt, assistant director of government and community relations at (508) 793-3995.

Faculty and staff looking for a long-term service opportunity may be interested in the listing of community partners seeking new board members.
