FSU Alumni Association

Seminole Service Day

Mark your calendars for March 18, 2017: the Sixth Annual Seminole Service Day!

 

You’re invited to volunteer with your local Seminole Club® on Saturday, March 18, 2017, as part of the FSU Alumni Association's Sixth Annual Seminole Service Day — a coordinated day of community service. Uphold the garnet and gold by pitching in on a service project in your community.

Service projects are being added daily, so check back often for a project near you.

Share your pictures! #SeminolesServe2017

* Please note that while majority of projects are on Seminole Service Day, March 18, 2017, there are several projects that are occuring on a different date.

For generations, the ideals of our great alumni have been guided by a sense of service. Seminole Service Day personifies that tradition and it is extraordinarily gratifying to know the work we are doing in our community is being replicated — at that very moment — from coast to coast.

FSU Alumni Association President and CEO
