One Bus, One Cause

chancellor
Using the momentum and enthusiasm for civic engagement that arises from Volunteer Day, the UCLA Volunteer Center sends a bus filled with volunteers into the community in order to address specific needs in that area.

Through partnerships with other non-profits and outside organizations, this program addresses a different cause and organization with each visit to expose Bruins to a sampling platter of volunteer opportunities and to pique volunteers’ interest in programs they could work with on an ongoing basis.

Looking for ways to participate with One Bus, One Cause? Here are a few ideas:

Upcoming Events

Saturday, August 29 (8:30 – 2:30): Back to School Health and Wellness Fair
On Saturday, August 29, the Volunteer Center will take a bus filled with volunteers to Oakwood Park in Venice to assist with the 62nd Assembly District’s Back to School Health and Wellness Fair. The 62nd District is centered around Los Angeles International Airport and encompasses economically and ethnically diverse cities including Inglewood, Gardena, Hawthorne, El Segundo, Playa del Rey, Venice, Westchester and Marina Del Rey. Sponsored by Assemblywoman Autumn Burke and Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Bonin, the inaugural fair will include free health screenings and school supplies, food, games, entertainment, as well as valuable community resource information. Volunteers will assist with check-in, distributing school supplies, and staffing game areas and food booths.
