Community Service Opportunities

Major Community Service Events

9/11 Day of Caring/12 Hours of Light: Students volunteer with multiple projects across the greater Beverly area and gain on-the-ground experiences with area non-profits.

Adopt a Family: The Community Service Office adopts families in need, during the holiday season, from Beverly Bootstraps, NFI Amesbury short term group home, and HAWC. The office then pre-shops for gifts on the children's wish lists and hosts a week-long shop for students, faculty, and staff to purchase these gifts. 

Group Toy Drives: Several groups on campus host toy drives for our community partners across the north shore.

Community Blood Drives: Annually, Endicott partners with the American Red Cross to host on campus blood drives.

Community Involvement Fairs: The Community Service Office partners with Student Activities to hosts an involvement fair each semester for students to learn, interact, and connect with student clubs, organizations, and community partners.

Safe Trick or Treat/Community Spring Celebration: These annual events are hosted by Endicott College and are free and open to all Beverly area children and their families.

The American Cancer Society’s (ACS) Relay For Life of Endicott College: Our Relay for Life Committee leads this 12- hour walk where individuals create teams and fundraise for cancer research, patient services, and cancer related programs.

North Shore Walk to Defeat ALS: The Walk to Defeat ALS is an opportunity to unite and fundraise for those living with ALS. Each year, fundraising drives bold and urgent innovation as we march together toward a cure for ALS. In 2018, the Endicott campus became the walk’s new home.
