Saturday, September 11th

St. Thomas of Villanova was known for his great charity to the poor and marginalized. The Villanova community celebrates its patron saint and his legacy with an annual Day of Service in his name.

Each year, the St. Thomas of Villanova Day of Service brings together more than 2,000 students, faculty, staff, alumni and their families working in partnership with neighborhood agencies to perform service throughout Greater Philadelphia. This annual event builds upon the great service performed throughout the year by the Villanova community and exists as a unique way to put its Augustinian ideals into action.

Day of Service Registration Process

There are three types of online registration for the Day of Service:

  • Groups (i.e. classes, orientation groups, clubs, academic or staff departments, etc) should use the Group Registration form. The group contact will need the name, email address, lunch preference, class year/status, and shirt size of all members of the group to complete the form. The group contact will select a service site preference for the group.

    Group registration dates: August 20 - September 1

  • Groups that have already organized their own service site but need logistical support (transportation, food, etc) and groups performing their project in a different area of the country or on a different day (i.e. alumni groups) should use the Independent Site Group Registration form.

    Independent group registration dates: August 20 - September 1

  • Individual students, faculty, and staff should use the Individual Registration form. As service sites become full, the names of those sites will be removed from the selection menu.

    Individual registration dates: September 8 - September 13
