Southwest Florida College Creates Grant Opportunity for Community Service

Southwest Florida College announces a community service grant that encourages students to become more involved in volunteer service within the community.
In partnership with the United Way of Southwest Florida, students may participate in a service learning project at a non-profit agency. Southwest Florida College will then award financial grants to students who complete at least 20 volunteer hours per month at one of the approved agencies.

“Volunteer service helps our community and enriches our students,” said Dr. Stephen Calabro, Executive Vice President at Southwest Florida College. “The College is a major stakeholder in the local community to the extent that we influence positive change, everyone benefits.”

Southwest Florida College is seeking corporate underwriters to help expand the program. Business leaders interested in partnering with the College should contact Diana Sabino, Director of Marketing and Communications for Southwest Florida College, by calling 888-279-2342 or emailing info@swfc.edu.
