Summer of Service (SOS)
Augustana’s Compassion and Action with Our Neighbor Ministry invites your participation in a Summer of Service (SOS). Between June 1 and September 11, 2022, CAN Ministry asks you to track and submit your volunteer hours outside of Augustana. In the fall, these service hours will be totaled and celebrated in a special recognition during worship.
Record and share your volunteer hours and in-kind donations through the link to the right, and read on for opportunities to serve with Augustana members and friends.
Consider volunteering through these events:
Tuesdays, July 12 and August 9, 5:30–7:30 p.m.
Ten spots available each day for the Metro Caring facilities at 1100 E 18th Avenue in Denver. Watch for sign-up information in the coming weeks. Volunteers need to be at least 15 years old.
