Together, we will beautify the Frank Hotchkin Memorial Training Center for our Los Angeles emergency service heroes and create 1,000 Disaster Readiness kits for our community.


This event will have several projects, including creating Disaster Preparedness Kits, painting indoor rooms, assembling/refurbishing tables and planter boxes, weeding, planting, and more! Volunteers may be asked to stand to work, help lift, shovel, build, and use power tools. Gloves, paint supplies, and tools will be provided for specific projects (bring your own gloves if preferred). All items for the disaster kits will be purchased in advance to ensure each kit is identical, so no donations of that kind are needed for this event.

Cesar Chavez Day is a U.S. federal commemorative holiday, proclaimed by President Barack Obama in 2014. The holiday celebrates the birth and legacy of the civil rights and labor movement activist Cesar Chavez on March 31 every year.

It is commemorated to promote service to the community in honor of Cesar Chavez's life and work. Some state government offices, community colleges, libraries, and public schools are closed. Texas also recognizes the day, and it is an optional holiday in Arizona (official holiday in the city of Phoenix, Arizona) and Colorado. Americans are urged to "observe this day with appropriate service, community, and educational programs to honor Cesar Chavez's enduring legacy."

The Center for Community Engagement is promoting a digital celebration of Cesar Chavez Day, see above for options on how to celebrate virtually.

Are you looking to connect with your community? Here's an opportunity to learn about local organizations, build your network, and find local volunteer opportunities near you!

The CPP Virtual Volunteer Fair provided an opportunity for Cal Poly Pomona students, staff, and faculty to connect with volunteer organizations virtually to promote meaningful opportunities for volunteer service and sustain civic engagement in a virtual environment. 

During National Volunteer Week on April 18 - April 24, 2021, we celebrated service in partnership with the CSU system! This virtual event showcased local and regional nonprofits and community-based organizations representing diverse social impact areas—from housing, education, arts, food insecurity, forestry and children's services.
