|MacServe Day of Service is an annual event run by the Student Success Centre that connects students with local community organizations in Hamilton and Mississauga. This year, in honour of McMaster's 125th anniversary, we're expanding the MacServe Day of Service to reach communities across Canada - with a little help from our alumni and friends. |
On September 29, alumni in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Ottawa (as well as Hamilton and Mississauga) will join in and give back to their communities simultaneously, working together in celebration of the University and the memories we share as McMaster graduates.
Our community partners for the MacServe Day of Service are:
Vancouver: Lend a hand with tasks such as, planting, weeding, mulching, and harvesting organically grown fruits and vegetables at The Sharing Farm, 2771 Westminster Highway. **A shuttle will be arranged from downtown or UBC if requested.**

refugees to the community through a common interest in sport and
