Tuesday, September 17, 2019, is more than an afternoon out of the classroom for more than 300 NCU students, staff, and faculty. It is a time when the entire campus Embraces The Community (ETC) to work together to support local non-profit organizations.
“ETC Day is the ignition point for Beacons to begin the fall service component of our University’s commitment to have wisdom, faith, and service at the center of every thing we do in the classroom, at home, on the job, and in the community,” said Jennifer Little, M.A., Assistant Director of Residence Life and Coordinator for Campus Ministry. “Our campus community is involved in local and international volunteer work all year along, but ETC Day brings us together as a campus family to focus on supporting the organizations who serve people we know and see every day.”
NCU students, staff and faculty will be assigned to volunteer work assignments at St. Vincent de Paul, Hendricks Park Shelter, CASA of Lane County, Luper Cemetary, Eugene Mission, Hosea Youth Services, Child Evangelism Fellowship, Springfield Youth Farm, SheterCre, Catholic Community Services, Grassroots Garden, Camp Harlow, Quail Park Memory Care, Greenhill Humane Society, Hope Ranch Ministries, Youth for Christ, Womenspace, Inc., Love INC, Mt. Pisgah, Olive Plaza, Looking Glass, and Veterans’ Housing Project.
NCU’s ETC Teams will be at their work sites beginning at 1 pm and will conclude their projects by 3:30 pm.
