Coats For Kids

coats for kidsKeep Dayton warm by donating kids coats to the Fitz Center. From Nov. 6 through 20, we will be collecting kids coats for Dayton elementary schools. You can donate them in marked donation boxes across campus (ZH 203, KU info desk, FH 618, RecPlex Lobby) or use our online Amazon wish list for a quick and easy donation. Through Amazon, anyone can choose a coat from the wish list and take it to the Fitz Center or have it shipped directly there.

Volunteer with our Neighborhood School Centers

The Fitz Center has established a strong partnership with the Neighborhood School Centers (NSCs). NSCs are Dayton Public Schools that are centered on their neighborhoods, serving as healthy places of learning for children and families. Currently, there are five NSCs. They are Cleveland, Edison, Fairview, Kiser, and Ruskin schools.

Students have the ability to volunteer weekly or on a one-time basis at any of the NSCs. Volunteer opportunities include: tutoring, coaching, classroom assistance, afterschool assistance, and mentoring. Weekly volunteers are required to attend an orientation hosted by a CEL team member.

Both weekly and one-time volunteers should be familiar with their NSC. They should know where to go on their first day, how to get there, and who to contact. See the list below.
