Service Committee

The Service Committee assists in matching members’ interests with volunteer opportunities for service to the community and to the university. The following opportunities are ways in which EUEC members have served and volunteered:

  • MedShare, a nonprofit organization that delivers surplus medical supplies and equipment to hospitals in more than 85 developing nations. Members of the Service Committee visit Medshare to sort and pack these items on the fourth Thursday of every month, except November and December. Carpools are arranged for each session.
  • The Beckett Project, sponsored by the Emory Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, involving editorial work on the collected correspondence of the Irish literary figure Samuel Becket.
  • The Atlanta Community Food Bank Food and Fund Drives, in which EUEC volunteers organize a collection effort among the Emeritus College membership and other groups.
