Cys Day of Service
Celebrate Iowa State by Serving your Community
Cy's Days of Service is designed to unite alumni worldwide in community service during the month of April. This month of service is a great opportunity to help spread the pride alumni have in ISU, recognize the combined efforts of all alumni that have had a tremendous impact on local communities and show how ISU alumni change the world.
In 2015, 459 alumni gave 3878 hours to their communities representing 28 states.
This year DFW Cyclones are getting back in on the action!
Have you ever wished that you could somehow give back to those policemen, firemen, EMTs and others that give of themselves every day? Here is your chance to do just that while representing Iowa State. Volunteer Now of Dallas can use our help at their Discount Depot! This event is open to all ISU Alumni and Friends. Please wear an ISU shirt if possible and join us.
We will be sorting merchandise and helping in the store at VolunteerNow’s Dallas location of Donated Goods Discount Depot (2800 Live Oak Street, Dallas 75204). This retail store provides nonprofits access to items donated by area retailers for sale at a fraction of retail cost. Donors of new, surplus, and gently used items include generous corporate supporters such as JCPenney, Sam’s Club, Target, and many more. Shopping at Donated Goods is open to VolunteerNow’s member nonprofits, as well as local school district employees, police officers, firefighters, EMTs, military personnel, and veterans.
After the event we will host a party/cook out with food and drinks provided by the club and the host family. Details of the party will be made available to all who attend the volunteer opportunity in the morning. The party will start as soon as we leave Volunteer Now.

CyclONEfamily Picnic - Save the Date
Please mark your calendars for June 4th. We will be making a detailed announcement about our CyclONEfamily Picnic very soon. We will be providing pulled pork sandwiches and sodas while we are asking everyone to please bring a dish (side dish or dessert). We will create a sign up sheet on the website soon and we will be charging a very nominal registration fee ($1/ person; maximum $5/family) to attend. The fee will help us track numbers so please sign up once the link is available. Gate admission will be at a higher rate in an attempt to encourage everyone to sign up in advance.
If you are interested in helping to plan and coordinate the picnic, please email our CyclONEfamily Picnic Chairman, Doug Hyde at firstname.lastname@example.org
