On-Campus Service Projects are open to the entire RIT community and are designed to support the RIT and greater Rochester communities.
Giving Tuesday: Hunger Project
Giving Tuesday, traditionally held on the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, encourages people to volunteer and give back to their communities. At RIT, we celebrate Giving Tuesday by coming together as a community to prepare thousands of meals for the Rochester community in partnership with US Hunger.
Into the ROC: The Hunger Project
Framing Frenzy is held each Spring semester as part of RIT's Service Week. RIT partners with Flower City Habitat for Humanity to host the Framing Frenzy. Hundreds of RIT students, faculty, and staff work together to build frames for two houses during this day-long on-campus event. Once the frames are constructed, they are transported to Habitat build sites in the Rochester community.
