JOBSITE REGISTRATION CLOSED

Jobsite registration for the 21st Annual Day of Service on April 6 has CLOSED. If you are a resident or nonprofit still needing assistance but missed the deadline, please contact bobcatbuild@txstate.edu.

Jobsites consist of community partners, both residential and non-residential, within or around the Hays County area. Information about being a jobsite and things to know can be found below.

The Work We Do

Prior to the Day Of, our Bobcat Build will do in-person visits with those who completed the registration form to go over all of your needs, volunteer numbers, tools needed, and an overall assessment of what we can and cannot do. Note: we will have two options for days and times that you would like us to complete this evaluation. You can select which option works best for you in the jobsite registration form.

On the Day Of, a group of volunteers will spend approximately four hours at their assigned jobsite to complete the services requested. We are prepared to agree to any COVID precautions (i.e., masks) made by the jobsite and are more than happy to comply!

Many jobsites normally request (but are not limited to) beautification projects such as raking leaves, weeding, planting flowers, mulching, painting, window washing, general spring cleaning, and other projects. If you have any questions about this list or what else could be provided, please feel free to contact us at bobcatbuild@txstate.edu or 512-245-4245.

In addition, one of our goals this year is to provide services to more nonprofit agencies in ways that impact our community. Examples can include serving at a food pantry, animal shelters, women’s shelters, and other organizations. If you are a nonprofit organization and have volunteer opportunities we could assist with, please contact us at the information provided above!

Volunteer at 20th Annual Day of Service

Who do we serve?

We serve residents, churches, non-profit organizations, schools within Hays County regardless of socioeconomic level! However, we unfortunately do not serve HOAs.

Why do we serve?

Thousand of volunteers within our Texas State community look forward to this day every year as it gives us the ability to give back and express our gratitude to the community that supports Texas State University. As you support Texas State University, we want to make sure the support is reciprocated.

It is important to remember that our Day of Service event is not about the number of jobs completed or reaching record-breaking numbers; it is the relationship we create between students and community members that makes our event so unique and impactful.
