Local university and college students are getting in on the action during the 2nd annual Spokane Gives Week. Students from Eastern Washington University, Gonzaga University, Spokane Community College, and Whitworth University will complete service projects during Spokane Gives Week (April 25-May 3) in a friendly competition.

Spokane Gives Week is part of the Compassionate Spokane Initiative, a community-wide effort designed to encourage year-round volunteerism. Last year, more than 7,000 volunteers logged 28,400 hours at 106 events in support of the Spokane community. This year, hundreds of people have already signed up.

The local students will play a big role as the City looks to double the total volunteer hours during Spokane Gives Week 2015. The school with the most service hours per capita will be crowned champion.

Let the giving begin!
