Serve Day: September 14, 2016
Each fall, George Fox closes for one day to allow students and employees to serve surrounding communities. The tradition began in 1999 and continues to grow in scope and magnitude each year.
Serve Day 2016 will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 14. We are anticipating more than 1,900 students and employees joining together to serve in a variety of ways – including construction, painting, weeding, cleaning and visiting with seniors – in Yamhill, Washington, Marion, Multnomah and Clackamas counties.
"Here we were, dedicating a day to serving people like Marilyn, and at the end of the day she was the one who served us with her conversation and prayer."
