Cal State Fullertonís Spirit of Volunteerism Shines Brightly

Cal State Fullertonís Volunteer & Service Center is the recipient of a Daily Point of Light, which is awarded by the Points of Light Foundation and the Volunteer Center National Network, in partnership with the Knights of Columbus and the Corporation for National Service.

The honor recognizes organizations and individuals who have made a commitment to connect Americans through service to help meet needs in the community and in the nation.

"Whether it be tutoring an elementary school student, mentoring at a homeless shelter or delivering food to needy families, Cal State Fullerton students are changing the world," said Sabrina Sanders, coordinator of the Volunteer & Service Center.

This past year, more than 600 Cal State Fullerton students performed approximately 20,000 hours of service for the benefit of 5,000 community members through the centerís community-based programs. In addition, thousands more hours of service were donated by student members of university clubs and Greek organizations.

"Our students are addressing the needs of our community and redefining their lives through their commitment to community service and volunteerism," Sanders added.

Cal State Fullertonís Volunteer & Service Center places volunteers in a variety of sponsored community-based programs, such as those directed at illiteracy, hunger and homelessness, the environment, health and mentoring.
