Serve912 Trips at Armstrong
Serve912 is our local service initiative. We engage with the community year-round through regularly scheduled volunteer trips, ongoing community service activities, and meeting local needs!
The goal of the Serve912 program is to provide various ways to explore the valuable services community agencies provide our diverse community members and to help you live your values through service and volunteerism. We encourage you to try volunteering on a few different Serve912 trips until you find one that fits you, then start serving there on your own. Transportation is provided by the Office of Leadership & Community Engagement. Join other Georgia Southern students, connect with the broader community, and learn about important local issues!
Fall 2022 – Serve912 Trips
Our Fall 22 Serve912 Trip partners are Captain’s Cupboard, Coastal Pet Rescue, and Emmaus House.
Captain’s Cupboard on the Armstrong Campus is a resource that helps students, faculty, and staff who are in need of supplementary food items, hygiene products, and menstrual products. This initiative was started through a donation made to the Armstrong location and can only serve students, faculty, and staff on the Armstrong and Liberty campuses.
Every Monday and Thursday this Fall, Armstrong Serve912 Captain’s Cupboard trip teams will meet up at 1:55 PM in the Student Union. Students should be dressed in clothes they do not mind getting dirty, closed-toed shoes, and have a mask and/or face covering with them. The trip will dismiss by 4 PM.
Coastal Pet Rescue is an animal rescue organization dedicated to saving the lives of homeless, abused, and neglected dogs and cats in Savannah and surrounding areas. This organization provides a variety of services to help decrease the number of euthanizations.
Every Wednesday this Fall, Armstrong Serve912 Coastal Pet Rescue trip teams will meet up at 12:55 PM in the Student Union. Students should be dressed in clothes they do not mind getting dirty, closed-toed shoes, and have a mask and/or face covering with them. The trip will return to campus by 3 PM.
Emmaus House is an unrestricted soup kitchen; no one is ever turned away, no questions asked. It is a place of respite from the outside elements for individuals experiencing homelessness. This organization provides vital services to local individuals facing homelessness in the Savannah area.
Every Friday this fall, Armstrong Serve912 Emmaus House trip teams will meet up at 10:55 AM in the Student Union. Students should be dressed in clothes they do not mind getting dirty, closed-toed shoes, and have a mask and/or face covering with them. The trip will return to campus by 1 PM.
