Be a Part of iHelp: Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank Volunteer Day!

Saturday, October 1, 2016 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM

iHelp is the signature campus-wide day of service in the fall, bringing together students, their surrounding community, and university alumni in an organized effort to create a culture of giving at the University of Illinois. Each year, over a thousand students come together to assist dozens of agencies across the Champaign-Urbana area in a display of gratitude to the community we call home. Many other alumni clubs are participating in iHelp by hosting service events just like ours. Join Us!
