ASUNM’s Community Experience is gearing up to host its annual large-scale community service event, Spring Storm, on Saturday, April 13.
Throughout the year, Community Experience hosts a variety of community service events, but their annual Spring Storm event is their largest by far.
Every year over 1,000 UNM students, staff and faculty participate in a one-day service project. This event offers a fun way of giving back to the Albuquerque community through a massive volunteer force.
“Spring Storm gives students the opportunity to give back to their community and interact with other student organizations,” says Community Experience Executive Director, Rebecca Faulkner. “Many of our events put on throughout the year take place on campus, so Spring Storm is a great time for students to make an impact all over Albuquerque.”
At this event, students meet at Johnson Center and are separated into various teams to be sent off to different sites around Albuquerque and give back to the community.
In the past, volunteers have cleaned up different areas around campus and were even sent off campus to clean up other locations in the Albuquerque community.
Sites this year include working with the Roadrunner Food Bank, The Storehouse, Mandy’s Farm and Joy Junction. Community Experience is also coordinating with several locations with Albuquerque Parks and Recreation.
