Central Serves Returns For Second Year

Social responsibility is a vital part of Central Methodist University’s mission to “make a difference in the world.” Its significance is a piece of every CMU education, and it remains intact and ongoing after graduation through the efforts of alumni.

For the second year, Central Serves will provide alumni and friends of CMU the opportunity to put other obligations aside, and set an example about what it means to be responsible, productive leaders of society through service projects.

The one-day event is scheduled for Saturday, April 22, and welcomes all alumni, near and far, to serve on behalf of CMU. 

Last year, 157 individuals stepped up to do their part for Central Serves. They worked approximately 284 man-hours, which were spent at project sites and with organizations across Missouri, California, Texas, Kansas, and even Belgium. 

“The time alumni and friends took to serve on behalf of Central Methodist impacted so many lives in a variety of ways; and the value in that is simply immeasurable,” said Meagan Davis, assistant director of special projects for the Office of Advancement and Alumni Relations.

To host a project site, volunteers can choose from already-established sites or register additional sites. For more information, email Davis or visit CMU's alumni website and under “Events,” locate “Central Serves.”
