Spring 2022 Day of Service Recap

Over 200 CSUSM and MCC student volunteered for the 2022 César Chávez Day of Service held on Thursday, March 31, César Chávez's birthday. Students, staff, and faculty members volunteered at a variety of hands-on projects at community partner sites across north county and in Temecula valley. After two years of virtual days of service, this year's return to the community was a great turnout of CSUSM and MCC's campus committments to serving the community!
