UTEP Plans Multiple Community Volunteering Projects to Celebrate Centennial

Hundreds of volunteers will participate in multiple community projects throughout El Paso as part of UTEP’s annual day of service, Project MOVE, on March 1.

More than 1,600 students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends will work alongside community partners at about 80 locations around the Paso del Norte region. Some of this year’s projects include painting, landscaping, repairing dog kennels, assisting with youth sports programs, highway and community cleanups, and enhancements to neighborhood skating areas.

UTEP is continuing to register volunteers in hopes of reaching their goal of 2,014 people.

A few projects slated for volunteer work are:

  • Seussville Block Party at Project Vida, 3607 Rivera. Volunteers will help operate art, science and reading stations during the National Read Across America Day activity that also celebrates Dr. Seuss’ birthday.
  • El Paso High School will play host to about 200 volunteers, including 100 from UTEP, to spruce up the campus in anticipation of the school’s 100th birthday in 2016. Workers will be painting, landscaping and performing general upkeep.
  • Members of the UTEP women’s soccer team will referee games and offer skills training to youth soccer players at Sue Young Park, 9730 Diana Drive.
  • Volunteers will help paint a mural at Latinitas of El Paso, a nonprofit center that helps girls ages 11-18.
  • A good cleaning and a coat of paint will “add personality” to the impressive Van Buren Dam Skateable Stilling Basin, 4001 N. Piedras (behind the Dairy Queen) near McKelligan Canyon.
