On Saturday, November 12, SMU community members will serve at nonprofit organizations across North Texas as part of Stampede of Service, a campus-wide community service day.

Stampede of Service is organized by SMU’s Community Engagement and Leadership Center (CEL), in partnership with SMU Fraternity and Sorority Life, and eight Dallas nonprofit organizations: Dallas Afterschool, Dallas-Area Habitat for Humanity, Dolphin Heights Community Garden, The Family Place, Heart House, LIFT, Mount Auburn Elementary and We Over Me Farm.

“Through Stampede of Service, students will gain experience through hands-on, educational service work,” says Rashad Givhan, assistant director of the Community Engagement and Leadership Center. “Volunteers also have the opportunity to make a positive, sustainable impact in Dallas by responding to community-identified needs through our partner nonprofit organizations.”

More than 150 students, staff and faculty members are expected to participate. Follow the hashtag #SMUserves on Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/smudallas/ and on Twitter – https://twitter.com/smu/
