SIU Day of Service

Friday, April 19, 2019 - 9:00am to 4:00pm

Location

Enos Park Neighborhood, Springfield, IL

Description

The Day of Service is SIU's annual volunteer event which brings together all Springfield medical students. This year the Day of Service will be held on Friday, April 19th from 9am-4pm. This event is a wonderful way to provide students and faculty with the opportunity to reach out to, and help members of the community in which we learn! Every year SIU has recurring projects throughout Enos Park such as alley clean-up, community garden set-up, and landscapong/park clean up. Additionally, SIU hosts special projects that change on a yearly basis. Previously, students have provided radon test kits and litigated for the homes who reported dangerous levels of radon, administered smoke detector tests and performed fall risk assessments throughout the neighborhood. This year students will be re-mulching the Enos Park playground, made possible by a generous sponsorship from Memorial Medical Center. The new mulch will improve the safety and comfort of the Enos Park Playground for our young neighbors! Students are incredibly grateful for past volunteers, those who plan to volunteer this year and of course to Memorial Medical Center for making our Enos Park mulch project possible.

If you wish to volunteer please contact Kelly Roth MS4 at kroth47@siumed.edu and find more information regarding sign up at http://edaff.siumed.edu/appointment/day_of_service_2019.asp
