Our sleeves were officially rolled!  It only took half of a day to make a whole lot of difference.  In support with Northwestern Medicine, "Roll Up Your Sleeves" Service Day took place Tuesday, Sept. 11. Team NM, Northwestern Medicine's employee-based volunteer program, joined College of DuPage faculty, staff, and students at surprise locations to put in a good day's work. Examples of service projects included cleaning, painting, and restoration at local nonprofit organizations such as schools, nature centers, and food pantries.

HOW THE DAY WORKED:

9:30 a.m.- Check in with COD Cares/NM staff (Student Services Center Atrium).

10 a.m.- Groups are transported to their assigned secret location. Upon arrival, they will learn about that organization's role in the community and receive assignments for the day.

1 p.m.- Groups return to campus for the "Lunch and Share" where they will inform others of their organization's mission and service experiences.

2 p.m.- Back to work!

THINGS TO KNOW:

  • Prepare to get messy! Dress in old clothes and close-toed shoes that can handle spills.
  • Prepare to be surprised! Preferences such as indoor/outdoor activities will be taken into consideration.
  • Can't leave campus for the day? We have options for you right here on campus.
  • COD Cares will supply all work materials, transportation, snacks, and bottles of water.
