Service Saturday will be held Saturday, Nov. 6, from 10 a.m.-noon.

Service Saturday is a once-a-month service opportunity for MSU students, staff and faculty members, as well as community members, to gather together to complete service projects for local non-profit organizations.

Participants for the Nov. 6 event should meet near the Ask-Us Desk in the SUB around 9:45 a.m. to sign up for projects and gather as groups.

The following service projects will be completed Nov. 6:

Youth Initiative/1,000 New Gardens
Bozeman Youth Initiative needs help gathering compostable materials for their 1,000 New Gardens program. Participants will collect leaves, fallen branches and other carbon rich materials. All of the gathered materials will be deposited into one of two local compost sites, which will help 1,000 local families begin gardens this upcoming spring.

Can the Griz- food drive collection
Volunteers will be collecting non-perishable food items from Bozeman area neighborhoods as part of the Can the Griz food drive competition between MSU and the University of Montana to see who can collect more food for their community food banks by the day of the Cat-Griz football game. Event organizers hope that volunteers will collect hundreds of pounds of food donations for the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.

Huffing for Stuffing
Volunteers will help assemble 2,500 race packets for the Huffing for Stuffing Thanksgiving Day Run, a large fundraiser for the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.

Can the Griz- tailgate collection
Volunteers will be collecting non-perishable food items and handing out flyers to football game tailgaters to spread awareness of the Can the Griz food drive competition between MSU and UM. Last year MSU's 14,000 pounds of food beat out UM's 4,000 pounds. Organizers are looking for a repeat.
