Day of Service planned by students for students


March 02, 2012

More than 600 ASU students will serve the Phoenix community as part of the 12th annual "Devils in Disguise" Day of Service, March 10. The Arizona State University Community Service Coalition is a sponsor of the service day for student volunteers at more than 25 sites throughout the Phoenix area.  

The event begins at 9 a.m., with registration, a quick snack and music on the Student Services Lawn of ASU's Tempe campus. Students then will be bussed to the locations of their service projects where they will complete approximately two and a half hours of community service. Everyone will return to the Student Services Lawn to commence the event with lunch and entertainment until 2 p.m. 

Devils in Disguise gives students an opportunity to connect to the local community even if they are not habitually involved in service. Each service project is hosted by a different student organization, meaning their student members are exposed to volunteering through organizations with which they are already familiar. Furthermore, the event promotes student leadership and camaraderie through service to the Phoenix community.

Students will contribute an anticipated 1,500-plus hours of service to the Phoenix Metropolitan area.

Students have a wide variety of service projects to choose from when registering for the event. Current nonprofit and government agency partners include A New Leaf, Arizona Food Bank, the Arizona Humane Society, ASU Desert Arboretum, Chandler Christian Community Center, City of Phoenix, City of Tempe, Engineers Without Borders, Irish Cultural Center, MADD, Sojourner Center, St. Mary’s Food Bank, Tumbleweed Youth Services and United Methodist Outreach Ministries.

Since its inception in 2000, ‘Devils in Disguise’ has continued to expand, reaching more local agencies and involving more ASU students every year.  

More than 30 student groups participate in this event. Sponsors for the program include the ASU Community Service Program, Changemaker Central, Undergraduate Student Government, and the Tempe Residential Hall Association.

Students can register at volunteer.asu.edu.
