About "You've Been Served"

On Saturday, September 11, students, faculty, staff, administrators and others from the University of City College of Law will join together for an unprecedented service project.  We’ll even be joined by the Mayor of Cincinnati, Mark Mallory!

Called “You’ve been Served,” participants will do service at various sites throughout the Cincinnati area, including working at homeless shelters, volunteering with seniors and students, and partnering with organizations like Habitat for Humanity and Keep Cincinnati Beautiful.

Volunteers will sign up to participate in the Day of Service and will select which site they want to work at.  Then, after the service is over, everyone will come back together for a party celebration at ALMS Park!

All participants will receive a free lunch, a free t-shirt and can join in the party festivities!

So join us on September 10 for a day of service and help show that UC Law is committed to our community!   To register for the Day of Service Click Here.
