About this event

On Aug. 20, Mississippi State students, faculty and staff and local community members will come together for Service DAWGS Day to engage in a few hours of volunteering to impact our community.

We will have music and activities beginning at 9 a.m., and we encourage you to pick up your T-shirt at this time. Volunteering will begin at 10 a.m. and lasts through noon. Volunteer efforts begin at the community agency of your choosing via slots listed under the Cowbell Connect Service tab found after logging in via myState. Non-MSU affiliated community volunteers must pre-register online.

By 10 a.m., volunteers should arrive at the community agency they registered to support. There, they will find their site leader, who will direct service projects for the day.

The MSU Office of Student Leadership and Community Engagement, Maroon Volunteer Center and other student organizations will host an information table on the back patio of the MSU Barnes & Noble for day-of registrations. Attendees can also collect T-shirts, ask questions about how to get to volunteer sites, receive a snack or drink, voice concerns or pick up a complimentary $8 meal voucher after their service has ended.

Those interested in both volunteering and developing leadership abilities can apply to be a site leader by clicking here.

Site Leaders will check in 8:30-9 a.m. at the MSU Barnes & Noble's back patio to collect their instruction packet. They will meet all volunteers at their non-profit site to give instructions and will officially check all volunteers in for the event.

If you are a MSU student, faculty or staff member, bring your MSU ID. If you are not affiliated with the university, bring any form of photo ID.
