We foster college-community partnerships that contribute to the well-being of our local and global communities. Students can participate in one-time service opportunities, co-curricular service-learning programs that run on a weekly basis, and through one of the College’s academic courses with an integrated service component.
As the holiday season approaches each year, Lafayette students are given the opportunity to learn about hunger and homelessness on the local, national, and global level. Various programming such as an informative Hunger Banquet and a series of thought-provoking talks and documentary screenings seeks to educate students about hunger and homelessness issues and inform them of what they can do to make change! Check out the official Facebook page for this year's Hunger and Homelessness awareness week for event updates and a full list of events.Visit the official Facebook page for event updates!
As early as it may seem, the holiday season is fast approaching. The Landis Community Outreach Center is currently sponsoring the annual Holiday Helpers gift drive and needs YOUR help. The Holiday Helpers gift drive collects gifts for low-income families from around the Easton area. Gift tags are available to be taken right outside the Landis Center (120 Farinon). Signing out a tag is fast and easy! Just grab a mom or child tag (or both!) and sign it out by leaving your name and email address. There are over 300 different tags, so everyone’s help is needed! Gifts tags and the gifts are due back to the Landis Center by Monday, December 2nd in a reusable shopping bag. Monetary donations are also gladly accepted! If you have any questions feel free to contact Matt McKenzie (firstname.lastname@example.org). Help spread cheer and joy around the Easton community this holiday season.View our Informational Holiday Helpers video!
