Student Service Projects

Complete your Service learning hours at the HSEP!

Even though our volunteer program is on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to help all students complete their service learning hours by making toys from materials they find at home or constructing winter shelters for colony cats. Every toy that the student makes will receive 15 minutes of volunteer time; if they construct a winter shelter, they will receive 1 hour of volunteer work. Toys purchased will not count as credit for this project; ALL toys and shelters will have to be hand made. Once the project is completed, please drop them off at our facility seven days a week under our pavilion by our main doors. Please ensure everything is disinfected and packaged together, and adequately labeled to ensure the proper credit is received.

Please include the following information on the label:

Once we have received the project, we will send out an email with an attached letter with the hours that were accumulated. It may take up to seven to ten business days to receive a letter since we are not always on-site. For any questions, contact

Follow our step by step videos on how to make t-shirt toys and how to construct winter shelters.
