Our students are encouraged to offer volunteer service work to our community as a means of living their Christian vocation of charity.
While the WCU Service Learning Center provides many good opportunities for students to serve in the community each semester, we also strive to provide additional one-time and ongoing opportunities to students to practice the corporal works of mercy and fulfill Christ’s command to love our neighbor.
Some of the organizations we have provided volunteer service to include the Smoky Mountain Pregnancy Care Center, Habitat for Humanity, Clean Slate halfway house, and Full Spectrum Farms.
For the past few years we have provided weekly service on Tuesday afternoons to The Community Table in downtown Sylva, NC, assisting to provide hot meals to those in need.
UPDATE: Fall 2020 Semester
Due to concerns over spread of the coronavirus, The Community Table is not accepting student volunteers at this time.
Our students also participate in the annual Give Your Heart Away service weekend organized by the Diocese of Charlotte.
