Community Service Events
At one-time events you’ll have the opportunity to participate in service that benefits the local community, meet other KSC students, faculty, and staff, and explore critical social issues. Events are great for groups! You can learn more about our scheduled events below, or contact the Community Service Office for more information.
Walk to End Alzheimer’s
The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This year, Walk is everywhere–on every sidewalk, track and trail. Start a team or join the Keene State team, and walk to show your support for a world without Alzheimer’s (in groups of 10 or less, of course!).
The 2020 walk is scheduled for Saturday, September 26, 2020. Register HERE
Source to Sea Clean Up
The Source to Sea Cleanup is an annual trash cleanup of the Connecticut River system – rivers, streams and banks, parks, boat launches, trails and more. Each fall, KSC students, faculty, and staff head out across Keene to clean the Connecticut River and its tributaries on foot or by boat.
This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, September 26, 2020

American Red Cross Blood Drives
Every 2 seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. Keene State contributes by hosting blood drives on campus during every season. But we don’t just host, we host in style, and usually collect more pints than our goal! Volunteers can welcome donors, serve snacks in the canteen, and of course become donors themselves.
Monday, November 9, 2020 in the Mountain View Room.
Volunteer sign up for this drive will be posted soon. Make an appointment to donate HERE
Please note: Only KSC students, staff and faculty with a current COVID test wristband are eligible to donate and/or volunteer at campus blood drives.
Green Up Keene
By working together we can make Keene a greener community. Join Keene residents, businesses, community groups and Keene State College every spring in a volunteer event to clean up the city! This event typically occurs in April, weather permitting.
