Community Service & AU G.I.V.S.

Our Mission

The Community Service Office will strive to provide meaningful service opportunities locally, nationally and even globally in an effort to encourage social responsibility, community involvement and thoughtful action. 

Reach Beyond Your Boundaries to Help Make a Difference

Through Community Service at Ashland University, you will find many opportunities for reaching beyond your boundaries. From building houses with Habitat for Humanity to making blankets for local children in need, participation in community service gives you the opportunity to have great experiences while making new friends and connecting with others in our local community. We offer volunteer opportunities in the Ashland area, and also throughout our state and nation.  We also continue to add opportunities through outside organizations to make sure that you have the best chance possible to participate in whatever program interests you! There are so many opportunities to try something new through our office-we hope that you find something that interests you! 

If you would like to receive our weekly newsletter or would like more information on any of our programs, please email comserve@ashland.edu and ask to be put on our mailing list. Thank you for your interest in volunteerism!

Ashland University Gets Involved with Volunteer Service

Think you have what it takes to make a difference locally, nationally and even globally? We do! Get involved with AU G.I.V.S. – Ashland University’s student-led organization that provides awesome service opportunities throughout the Ashland area and beyond.

Examples of programs include dog walking at the local animal shelter; FEED Ashland – the largest food drive in Ashland County; youth story times; and CROP Walk – a program with local churches to help end hunger. There are also opportunities to connect with  folks at the Good Shepherd Nursing Home; build locally and nationally for Habitat for Humanity and so much more!

Stock the Sleigh

Many of you may be familiar with the concept of Adopt-a-Family. For those who don’t know, last year we supported Adopt-a-Family where different organizations sponsored families and purchased their gifts for the holidays.

This year, we have been asked to help out in a new way. Rather than the traditional Adopt-a-Family format, Associated Charities has shifted to stocking their Santa Room where parents are invited to select gifts for their children. Therefore, we will be sponsoring Stock the Sleigh! For Stock the Sleigh, you will purchase gifts and/or stocking stuffers that will be donated to the Santa Room.  To sign up, please click here to complete the participantion form.
