Volunteer UCF Hosts 8th Annual Knights Give Back Saturday

Over the past seven years, more than 5,000 members of the UCF community have volunteered at Knights Give Back.

Volunteer UCF will host its 8th annual Knights Give Back day of service Saturday, Oct. 11, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Volunteers will meet at UCF and then be transported to 25 different service sites throughout Central Florida, such as the Evans Community School, Oakland Nature Preserve and Habitat for Humanity of Seminole. More than 1,300 volunteers are expected.

“We’re really looking forward to having UCF students, faculty and alumni working together,” said VUCF student director Todd Currie. “This year, we plan on hosting the largest Knights Give Back in VUCF history with more organizations and volunteers than ever before.”

This year’s event is anticipated to facilitate about 5,200 hours of community service, totaling more than $117,000 of community impact. Over the past seven years, more than 5,000 students, employees and alumni have volunteered at Knights Give Back, resulting in more than 20,000 hours of service for the Orlando community and a financial impact of more than $400,000.
