Great Impact

Whether as an individual or in a group, College of DuPage students and staff continuously impact our community through service. Here are just a few ways we have made a Great Impact on the lives of others:

Spring 2018 Activities:

  • Feed My Starving Children: Volunteers packed enough food to fill 32 boxes adding to the evening's total of 112 boxes packed. This equates to 24,192 meals, which will feed 66 children each day for one year!
  • Northern Illinois Food Bank: Sorted and packaged 2,890 pounds of potatoes resulting in 578 5.5-pound bags of potatoes, which will provide 2,408 meals for hungry neighbors in Northern Illinois.
  • Spring Day of Action - Sustain and Reclaim: We celebrated Earth Week with environmental–friendly activities that supported COD's community garden, local recycling efforts and monarch butterflies.
