Seattle University student gardening for Day of ServiceJoin Seattle University for one epic day of service to make a difference in our local community and in communities our alumni call home around the globe. SU’s signature Day of Service event is taking place during Homecoming weekend on Saturday, November 9 and for the first time, is going global with sites across the country and around the world. It is an incredible opportunity to get friends and family together to volunteer.

In Seattle, we have partnered with more than 25 community organizations and several of the organizations will be bringing their projects to the Seattle U campus. All Seattle area volunteers are invited to the Homecoming Day of Service kick-off breakfast before serving. 

We are challenging all Redhawks to actively participate. With our diverse selection of sites, you can choose programs and partners that align with your passions. It’s a “great way to give back to the community and get to know organizations that do great work,” said a past volunteer. 

We are still confirming regional sites and hope to add more. With your support, we can make a positive impact on our local communities and globally. Don’t see a service site in your area? Have an idea for a service site in your neighborhood? Interested in leading a site? Contact Stephanie Jamieson at for leadership opportunities and regional or global site ideas and locations.
