Concordia Cares’ mission is simple: to offer students, faculty, and staff opportunities to serve the local community. Our volunteers are members of the Concordia family that share a common passion—to serve their neighbors in need. More than serving, however, Concordia Cares partners strategically with community organizations to build sustainable volunteer programs, educates Concordia’s campus about current social justice issues affecting the Orange County community, connects students, faculty, and staff in service together, and serves the local community ethically and mercifully.
Join us for a beach clean-up followed by kayaking! This is a great time being of service to the community, while also having fun with friends.
