Veterans Day Service Project – Nov. 4

CI's Serve It Up campaign is a yearlong program developed in collaboration with the Divisions of Academic and Student Affairs that provides the CI campus community with service opportunities.

In honor of Veterans Week and in recognition of the immeasurable service provided by our military personnel past and present, CI is partnering up with The Abundant Table Farm Project to engage students, faculty, and staff in a day of community outreach. Volunteers will join us as we learn more about the local farming community by actively planting, weeding, and harvesting seasonal vegetables with farmers in the field.

The event will be tomorrow, Nov. 4 from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. All participants will be provided with a Serve It Up t-shirt and water bottle, lunch, transportation and a great experience.

Participants will check-in at the Peace Pole, located between Sierra Hall and the Student Union building in Central Mall and will be taken by bus to the service site. Lunch will be served at the service site and we will return to campus by 1:30 p.m.

If you are interested in attending this event, please contact Jay Derrico directly at jay.derrico@csuci.edu.

Free LED Holiday Light Exchange and E-waste Collection – Nov. 12

LightsHere’s an easy way to be “greener” for the holidays. The Ventura County Regional Energy Alliance (VCREA) is teaming with the CI Green Generation club and PC Recycle to host a local electronic waste collection event and holiday light exchange on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Mission Oaks Park, 5879 Mission Oaks Blvd., Camarillo. Residents of Camarillo and all of Ventura County are encouraged to participate.

Residents will receive two free LED light strands per household in exchange for old, incandescent light strands (while supplies last). LED lighting differs from incandescent and compact fluorescent lighting because it is more efficient, durable, versatile, and longer lasting. All of that adds up to energy savings. Don’t forget to bring your outdated electronics for safe recycling as well.

For more information regarding the LED light exchange, please call the Ventura County Regional Energy Alliance at 805-654-3874, or for e-waste related questions, call PC Recycle at 805-499-0050.
