Are you interested in giving back to the National Harbor community while attending the 2017 NIRSA Annual Conference & Campus Rec and Wellness Expo in Maryland from February 21–24? If your answer is yes, you’re in luck! The NIRSA Community Service Project has been a wonderful tradition at the NIRSA Annual Conference for the past six years. The 2017 event is taking place on Tuesday, February 21 from 7:00am-2:00pm.

This year, NIRSA has partnered with the Capital Area Food Bank, a local organization dedicated to feeding those who suffer from hunger and malnutrition in the Washington, DC metro area by acquiring and distributing food through a network of 700 partners. The Capital Area Food Bank also performs outreach, education, and training to help those in need. NIRSA volunteers will have an opportunity to help as conveyor belt loaders, conveyor belt box makers, conveyor belt box checkers and tapers, conveyor belt movers of finished pallets, conveyor belt packers, and sorters.

As a volunteer, you will use your own helping hands to fight hunger in the Washington DC area. Unfortunately, due to limited space, this event has a maximum capacity of 58 participants—make sure to register today!

Registration for the 2017 NIRSA Community Service Project closes on January 11, which is also the last day to take advantage of early-bird pricing for NIRSA 2017. If you’ve already registered for NIRSA 2017, you can submit a registration addendum to add this meaningful preconference event to your Annual Conference experience.
