Rangers Give Back!

April 10 

Parkside Day is all about giving, giving back, and Ranger pride. What is a better way to celebrate Parkside Day then giving back to our Parkside Community? Join Rangers on UW Parkside’s Campus or anywhere on April 10th by volunteering for one of the slots below. 

For Parkside Day 2024 we are searching for 150 volunteers to help make Parkside Day one to remember! For every 50 volunteers who participate in Rangers Give Back, the UW-Parkside Foundation Board will donate $1,000 to the Future Focus Fund, up to $3,000.
