Panther Community Plunge
The Panther Community Plunge is Civic Engagement’s first large scale day of service of the academic year that introduces first year and returning students at Georgia State University to the numerous social issues faced by Atlanta communities. During Panther Welcome Week, student volunteers and staff leaders participate in service projects dealing with a variety of issues from the environment to homelessness.
Civic Engagement looks forward to having students join the next Panther Community Plunge on Saturday, September 8, 2018.
Last year, the downtown and greater Atlanta area projects included:
- Atlanta Community Food Bank Garden
- Atlanta Community Food Bank Product Rescue
- Trees Atlanta
- Safe House Outreach
- Salvation Army
- West Atlanta Watershed Alliance
- Naledge in Action
- Keep Atlanta Beautiful Recycling at Civic Center
- Mechanicsville Community Blitz
- Big Bethel AME Saturday School
The volunteer sites for the 2018 event will be announced in the coming months.
All volunteers should wear comfortable clothes they do not mind getting dirty and closed toed shoes. Volunteers are encouraged to bring water bottles and snacks for later in the day as well as sunscreen and bug spray for those participating in outdoor projects.
