EARTH House members are encouraged to serve in a variety of projects. Active members are required to do four service projects per year. Below are some of the more popular activities.

American Red Cross: Whether you are donating blood or donating time, the American Red Cross welcomes all volunteers. For more information on blood drives on campus or in the area, visit

THON: We are looking forward to another successful year participating in THON, which is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world. We raise money to benefit children suffering from pediatric cancer. See and attend the next business meeting for more information.

Housing Staff Appreciation: Don't miss our cooking-baking nights! We make cookies for the housing staff who keep everything in the dorms running smoothly.

Friday Night Lights Out Program: We take turns with other organizations making sure the lights are shut off in classrooms and that they are organized neatly to help out our custodial staff. 

The Arboretum: We participate in many volunteer projects with Arboretum staff since it is a short walk away from Runkle. We also participate in bird band volunteering in this space!
