What is Community Commitment?
Volunteering just doesn't get any bigger than this. Community Commitment is one of the largest single-day community service events on a college campus! Put on by Pay It Forward, this event brings together over 1,700 Buckeyes for a one-of-a-kind community service project.
The event is held before the start of classes, on the Tuesday of Welcome Week. In the fall of 2011 over 1,700 Ohio State University Students, faculty and staff participated and served at over 120 different service agencies around the city of Columbus. The volunteer projects included outdoor clean-up, working with youth, literacy education, serving meals, office work, and a variety of other worthwhile projects.
