All CGI U attendees are encouraged to participate in a day of service on Sunday, April 1. This service project will be held in partnership with Rebuilding Together and the USO, and will include remarks by President Clinton and other special guests. CGI U attendees and volunteers who participate in this morning of service will be assigned to one of two partner organization projects, and will then be sub-divided into smaller project teams. Rebuilding Together works to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities by providing free home repairs to low-income homeowners in need. CGI U students will participate in a wide variety of home repair activities including, painting, removal of yard debris and overgrown plants, installation of handrails and safety grab bars, carpet removal, weatherization of windows and doors and much more. The USO seeks to lift the spirits of America’s troops and their families through a wide range of programs and services, including the Operation USO Care Package program. CGI U participants and veterans will work with the USO to assemble care packages that will be sent to military units who are either about to deploy or are currently deployed overseas.
