FSU Alumni Association

Seminole Service Day

Mark your calendars for March 2018: the Seventh Annual Seminole Service Day!

 

You’re invited to volunteer with your local Seminole Club® during the month of March, 2018, as part of the FSU Alumni Association's Seventh 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! #SeminolesServe2018

* Please note that while the majority of projects will occur during the month of March, 2018, 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

  • ReStore is Sonoma County's 17,000 sq. ft. discount home improvement store selling new and gently-used building materials and furniture. Its departments include cabinets, appliances, furniture, windows, doors, flooring, plumbing, tools, garden, paint, and lighting. Inventory is donated by individuals, contractors, businesses, and wholesalers.
  • All operating profits from ReStore sales support Habitat’s build programs and some items donated to ReStore are used in Habitat homes. While making home improvement affordable for consumers, the store reduces the amount of waste that goes into the landfill. Every ReStore donation, shopper, and volunteer makes the dream of home ownership more accessible in Sonoma County.
