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 2021 – Serve912 Trips
Our Fall 2021 Serve912 Trip partners are Senior Citizen’s Inc and Coastal Pet Rescue.
Senior Citizen’s Inc provides a variety of services that meet physical, intellectual, and social needs. Volunteer teams would be engaging with senior citizens by playing a variety of games, hosting peer-to-peer conversations, encouraging exercise/health sessions, and assisting with gardening. The seniors that are being served are between the ages of 55-95 and have experienced some sort of physical/cognitive deficit that makes it unsafe for them to be at home alone. COVID vaccinations are preferred, and masks are required at all times within the facility.
Every Tuesday this fall, Armstrong Serve912 Senior Citizen’s Inc trip teams will meet up at 12:30 PM in University Court. This is located on the main floor of the Memorial College Center (MCC) nearby Starbucks. 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 3:30 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 Thursday this fall, Armstrong Serve912 Coastal Pet Rescue trip teams will meet up at 1:55 PM in University Court. This is located on the main floor of the Memorial College Center (MCC) nearby Starbucks. 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 4 PM.
