Volunteers from Cal Poly's Student Community Services will join a national service movement Nov. 6 that takes students "Into the Streets" to spend a day helping local service organizations.
Cal Poly volunteers will help out at the Transitions Mental Health Association, Judson Terrace Home for elderly, Economic Opportunity Commission's Homeless Shelter, the Land Conservancy and four other organizations.
Students will gather at 9 a.m. in the University Union before lending a hand to the local groups. Juan Gonzalez, vice president of student affairs, will give a kick-off speech to the volunteers at 9:30 a.m.
Into the Streets introduces students to community service and challenges them to volunteer on a regular basis.
The 5th annual Cal Poly Student Community Services-sponsored event helps students realize that they are part of the community and can contribute to making San Luis Obispo a better place to live, said Season Conlan, advisor of Student Community Services.
Cal Poly's Community Service and Learning Center houses Student Community Services, a student-run service organization that is involved with such projects as mentoring programs for youth and the developmentally disabled as well as programs to raise awareness about homelessness, hunger and the environment.
