Service

Service is our motto and a way of life at UNCG. The Staff Senate Service Committee identifies community service activities or initiatives on campus that are relevant to UNCG staff and coordinates staff participation in these activities. A strong emphasis is placed on Senate presence in and devotion to the UNCG community. Senators and their constituencies are encouraged to submit their service interests, needs, and ideas to the committee chairs throughout the year. Here are a few of our long-standing programs and partnerships.

Angel Tree

Every holiday season, the Staff Senate sponsors an angel tree to help make the holidays a little brighter for families in our community. We always have a big wrapping party to tie a big bow around this special event!

Teacher Warehouse Supply

The Staff Senate believes education is everyone’s business. We want teachers and students to have the tools they need for success, so every year we partner with Guilford Education Alliance (GEA) to collect classroom supplies.

Family Room

Family Room Foster Care Resource Center is a nonprofit organization that provides love, encouragement, and support to families who foster and the children in their care. The Staff Senate collects donations, helps keep their inventory in order, and the store tidy.

Out of the Garden

The Fresh Mobile Market is a mobile food pantry that distributes fresh produce, bread, meat, and shelf-stable items to qualifying families on a monthly basis throughout 29 locations in the Greensboro/High Point area. Families can expect to leave a Fresh Mobile Market with at least 65 pounds of food. @outofthegardenproject currently serves over 3,000 families every month!

Spartan Open Pantry

Founded and operated by Wesley-Luther United Methodist Church, UNC Greensboro’s food pantry provides students and employees who need a little help at the end of the month, homeless students and families who depend on the pantry for complete support, and assists our neighbors who need a hand. The SOP is located in College Place UMC at 509 Tate St., on the corner of Tate and Spring Garden Street.  The pantry entrance is on the back side of the church off the parking lot. Free parking is available during pantry hours.

Different View Equine Center

A Different View Equine Center is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help veterans, first responders, and their families and caregivers by connecting them with horses. They have no paid staff and function only with volunteers. Please sign up to help them with some necessary tasks around the farm. Please wear comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty as well as sturdy, closed-toe shoes.
