GIVE BACK TO YOUR COMMUNITY | MAY 20, 2023
OSU Day of Service is a celebration of our global Beaver community making positive changes. On May 20, alumni and friends of OSU will take the community spirit of Beaver Nation to the streets and online to make a difference.

Each year, we see volunteers from Oregon, Washington and California, but we would love to see Beavers take part this year from across the globe! Will you help us fill in the map?

I am always a firm believer in uplifting people in nursing homes and elder care, tulips are a great way to do that ...

It's an important way in which I can benefit at least three people who need blood.

It has to start somewhere, so why not start with me and my family spreading some cheer and cleaning up our neighborhood?
Marcia Torres-Ruiz, '01
Coming from a family who needed help in the past, I know all too well what it's like and how much it meant when someone helped us.

Hopefully the plant starts I grow and give away will encourage individuals to get outside and get some much-needed Vitamin D.
It's a need that we can help with that has made a huge difference for those who can't leave their homes.

Human connection is one of the deepest ways to show love and feed/received hope - to strangers and friends alike.
Helping students and the needs of those in my community are very important to me.
