Special Volunteering Events

Volunteer Valdosta

A day of activities that are related to community service.

Rivalry Blood Drive

During the week of the West Georgia football game, VSU students compete with West Georgia to see who can donate the most units of blood. An award is given during the football game to the school that donates the most units. This is a great way to show school pride as well as help the American Red Cross.

Holiday Helper

A campus wide project that takes place in the months of November and December. This event gives students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to help out community members in need by donating gifts to designated community agencies. For more information, email volunteer@valdosta.edu.

Give and Go Program

This program is co-sponsored by the Sociology Department with help from Housing and Residence Life, and is designed to help alleviate the amount of usable items that gets thrown out at the end of each year by students moving out of the Residence Halls. Collection sites are set-up around campus to collect the items that students no longer want or need, so they can in turn be donated to familes in South Georgia.
