Short-term Projects


"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." -Aesop


Lasting from a few hours to a full day, short-term projects are based on community-identified needs, provide a vital resource to the community, and are an enjoyable and a satisfying way to get involved. Some examples include:

The CSO organizes short-term projects on a regular basis and provides technical support and assistance to student groups or house communities who want to organize their own projects. Our short-term chairs are ready and able to assist with any and all details, including transportation.

"Working at Manna Soup Kitchen gives me the opportunity to interact with and aid people in need in the Northampton area by learning their stories over a hot meal. I leave Manna knowing that I helped contribute to the food security issue in Western Massachusetts by giving a few hours of my time." - Brianna, '17
