Community Action and Relief Experience
C.A.R.E. weekends are 1-2 hour service opportunities offered every weekend during the academic year. These weekly projects help our students connect with our community and get engaged in service. C.A.R.E. Weekends can consist of everything from visiting retirement homes or engaging with the homeless community to changing someone’s day by paying for their gas or groceries.
Due to COVID-19, our C.A.R.E. program is adapting by offering virtual service opportunities.

Associated Students of Walla Walla University, ASWWU, was created in May of 1914 to give students a voice on campus. ASWWU Spiritual leadership is helping to plan monthly CARE weekends. Currently ASWWU Global Services is hosting a holiday youth drive through an organization called Treehouse based in Spokane Washington. Treehouse is one of Washington’s leading organizations in supporting more than 7,000 youth in foster care. Treehouse’s goal for the community is to promote diversity and equality for youth in the foster care system. The holiday youth gift drive is one of the easiest ways you can give back: there will be boxes spread around main areas on campus where you can drop off simple gifts for the children such as toys, knit items, trinkets, etc.

The Buddy Club forms friendships between Walla Walla University students and adults in the community with disabilities. The club hosts bi-weekly events to help facilitate these friendships.
Business Club is for all students, not just business majors. We understand that college is stressful, so we plan at least one fun event per week to help you de-stress and socialize without having to do anything more than show up! A service project they promote is Hope Heals assisting homeless families by providing care packages.
