The Alicia Titus Memorial Peace Fund and the city of Urbana are linking Urbana University student athletes with community members in need. Our Urbana University athletes are lending a helping hand with the Caring Kitchen spring cleaning and restocking the food pantry.

The Cooperative Service Volunteer Program is a collective group of community members who believe in being of use within our community. It is my personal belief that if we are to have peace in this world, we must begin with our children. We must lead by example, teaching our youth the importance of caring for ourselves, our families, and for our communities. As we become useful and productive members of society and practice service to others, we can better serve our world in creating a culture of peace, one random acts of kindness at a time.

The Urbana University athletic teams and coaches are joining us on this mission by choosing an activity or project that they would like to be a part of throughout the academic year. Upcoming Service Volunteer Projects our UU Athletes are participating in include, painting picnic tables at the Urbana City Park, and assisting Habitat for Humanity with putting up the walls of a home, a new build in St. Paris on April 22. The Alicia Titus Memorial Peace Fund, the City of Urbana and our Champaign County community members are grateful for the Urbana University Athletic teams’ community service.
