Consider volunteering for Austin’s Day of Service

Austin’s Day of Service is an annual event that honors Austin Cloyd, a Centennial High School grad who was tragically killed in the mass shooting at Virginia Tech in 2007. 

This year’s event will be April 6th, and it’s a day where local students and community members are invited to participate in service projects throughout C-U. From the Facebook event:

The public is invited to participate and volunteer in this event on April 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Shifts will run in two hour time slots from 9:30-11:30, 11:30-1:30, and 1:30-3:30.

Some of the organizations that will be involved in Austin’s Day are:

– Champaign Unit 4 schools
