Serve Day is September 9, 2015
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 2015 will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 9. More than 2,000 students and employees will participate, performing a variety of projects – including construction, painting, weeding, cleaning and visiting with seniors – for sites 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."
