ASU's largest student-organized day of service 'Devils in Disguise' planned for March 23


March 07, 2013

On Saturday, March 23, ASU students will volunteer at more than 25 community services sites and contribute more than 1,500 hours of service to the metropolitan Phoenix area. Led by the Changemaker Central Arizona State University Community Service Coalition, the event will span all four ASU campuses and connect students to the community.

“This is the first year 'Devils in Disguise' will be held on all four campuses," said Emily Reynolds, a management intern with Changemaker Central that is responsible for community service programming. "Students from each campus will now have the opportunity to engage with their local communities. Each campus will host a separate registration and students will return to their respective campuses to celebrate a day of giving back.” .

With more than 45 student clubs and organizations conducting a service project, students have a wide variety of service options to choose from when registering.

Current nonprofit and government agency partners include Arizonans for Children Inc., ASU Arboretum, Boys and Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix, Brighton Gardens  of Scottsdale, Central Arizona Shelter Services, City of Phoenix Graffiti Busters, City of Tempe Parks, Diane Halle Center for Family Justice, Maggie’s Place, Muscular Dystrophy Association Walk, Out of the Darkness Walk, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Phoenix Weed Wackers, Rehoboth Community Development Corporation, Rio Vista Center, Small Matters, Sojourner Center, Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center, St. Vincent de Paul, Valley of the Sun United Way, Valley Permaculture Alliance and Whittier Elementary School.

The event will kick off at 9 a.m. with registration, food and music. Shuttle buses will transport students to a project location for approximately two and a half hours of community service. The event will conclude at 1 p.m. with lunch and entertainment.

Since its inception in 2000, "Devils in Disguise" has continued to expand, reaching more local agencies and increasing the number of ASU student participants. This year’s event has a projected target of 1,000 students.

Sponsors for the program include Changemaker Central, the Associated Students of Arizona State University, Residential Hall Associations from each campus and Arizona State Credit Union.
