Samford Gives Back

Samford Gives Back is a campuswide service initiative organized by the Community Service Council and Omicron Delta Kappa, the national leadership fraternity. The mission of Samford Gives Back is to mobilize Samford students, faculty, and staff in serving the greater Birmingham community. By registering with Samford Gives Back, volunteers will be a part of this large-scale community service effort while receiving benefits such as breakfast, a T-shirt, and 4 convocation credits.
The day will begin at 8:00 AM with breakfast and a short devotional in the Pete Hanna Center. Convocation credit will be awarded before students leave for their work site. Participants are expected to serve from 9:00 AM-1:00 PM.
