Looking for an ideal way to boost your resume, build a network, and grow during the process? CASE provides organized, structured events for UW-Stevens Point students both on and off campus. CASE organizes a variety of volunteer events including on-campus blood drives, Sustainable Saturdays, Be The Change, Empty Bowls painting event, Saturdays With Seniors, and more. Those event dates and details can be found in SPIN. We also encourage students to find their own opportunities through our collaboration with the United Way of Portage County. Please check out VolunteersRock to browse additional community involvement opportunities.
Be the Change is a volunteer event that sends UWSP students around campus & into the community to give back.
Some locations include:

Would you like to make a difference in the lives of a local senior citizen? Do you plan on working with the elderly population in your future profession? Are you looking to gain valuable insight from members of past generations?
Join us as we visit a local Assisted Living Facility to spend time with their residents on a Saturday afternoon. We try to visit each month during the academic year.
You will have the opportunity to do various activities with the seniors who live there. It is almost like spending the afternoon with your grandparents! Volunteers will meet at DUC to travel together. Transportation is provided.
Donate blood and/or volunteer to help your community! Donating normally takes about one hour from start to finish. One blood donation can save up to three lives! Even if you can’t donate, there are opportunities to volunteer throughout the day to assist with registration and monitor the food/recovery area. BE A HERO!
To donate blood, you must be at least 16 years of age (with a parental consent form) and weigh at least 110 pounds. Anyone that is not displaying any signs of an illness is able to donate. Donors will need a student ID, driver’s license, or donor card. If you recently received a tattoo or piercing from a licensed Wisconsin parlor, you are able to donate blood.
Check out SPIN for upcoming Blood Drives.
The Cupboard was created to help students meet basic needs so that they can focus on their academic success. The food pantry is staffed by student volunteers who organize food drives, raise awareness, and assist with the distribution of food to those in need.
