Hello everyone- as we mentioned in our last blog, SVC has a lot of exciting stuff coming up, so here’s an overview to keep you up-to-date on how you can get involved!

SVC will be hosting a fundraiser at Pizza My Heart on Tues. Feb. 2nd from 4-9pm where 30% of purchases during that time will be donated to our Alternative Spring Break program! Please come down and show your support so that we can have a successful trip to the East Bay to help out Habitat for Humanity!

Next, mark your calendars because we will be hosting a fundraiser dance on Friday, Feb. 19th in the College 8 Red Room!  Admission will be $2 at the door and enter participants into a drawing for a variety of local restaurant gift cards!  There will be a live DJ playing hip-hop, house, top 40 and more – it’s going to be a blast and it’s for an awesome cause so please come down and support our efforts!

In other news, SVC will soon be offering Community Service Project (CSP) Grants! Got a new and innovative idea that you’d like to implement in the Santa Cruz community? You may be eligible for up to $1,000 in SVC grant money! For more information please contact us at volunteer@ucsc.edu.

Lastly (for the time being), we will be starting work on the 2010 Relay for Life from March 22nd-23rd. This is an awesome way to get involved and give back to the American Cancer Society and work alongside the passionate members of the UCSC Colleges Against Cancer organization. Email us to join our team, make a donation, or find out more information!

That’s all for now- check back soon!
