Throughout the year we serve on Mason's Campus as well as in the community.  Here are a few of the ways we have served this year!

Hypothermia Shelter at St. Peter in the Woods Episcopalian Church

Local churches in the Fairfax area open their doors to allow homeless guests to stay overnight.  Arise hosted a dinner and stayed overnight this winter to serve.

Earth day

We also partner with various fraternities and sororities on campus, as well as local churches.  One such project was going to a local park and clearing it of invasive species of plants.  We planed other plants and trees (we actually did it on Earth Day...cool, I know).  We partnered with Pi Delta Psi for this project.

Stop hunger now

Each year Arise has hosted a Stop Hunger Now event on Mason's campus.  This year we packed 15,000 meals to send to Haiti to help their relief effort after the latest earthquake.  Through this event we partnered with many campus groups including the Campus Ministry Association and Mason Life.
