The Mays Center at Texas A&M University-San Antonio is inviting students to come out and volunteer at the Mission San Juan Community Farm at 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 21

This will be A&M-San Antonio’s first time hosting a volunteer event at the Mission; volunteers will harvest produce and tend to the garden.

General’s Store manager and Mays Center representative Chloe Martinez believes volunteering is even more important during a global pandemic now that more people are in need. 

“Volunteering has new meaning because of the crisis we are all in,” she said. 

COVID-19 precautions will be practiced at the outdoor event; a mask is required, temperatures will be taken before entry and social distancing will be enforced for everyone’s safety. 

Information about volunteering can be found on JagSync, preferred registration through GivePulse; a link will be on the Jagsync page. The last day to register is Nov. 17.
