Simpson University is a great place to serve. For more than 20 years, Simpson has been an active part of the Redding community, offering on campus athletic events, music concerts, lectures, craft fairs, and a “school” for retirees. Our mailroom, coffee shop and dining center are also open to the public.
The Friends of Simpson team is a group of volunteers involved with our students, our faculty and staff, as well as the Redding community. Three areas of focus for Simpson are:
- Creating awareness
- Building relationships
We are a friendly, vibrant team dedicated to helping our students succeed academically and personally. We have many opportunities for volunteers to make a difference in these young people’s lives, whether through prayer, mentoring, hosting meals, or other outreaches.
Friends of Simpson also help with university fundraising events and in spreading the word about student scholarships and special campus projects.
Friends of Simpson volunteers not only build relationships with Simpson students, employees and guests, they also grow close as a team. Meet new friends with similar interests and encourage your friends to join you.
Volunteer opportunities include:
- Greeting visitors in the Owen Center
- Mentoring students
- Praying for students
- Dinners for Eight (hosting a meal for up to eight students)
- Cookies at Christmas
- Fall and spring fundraising events
- Craft & Fair Trade Bazaar
- Green Thumb Friends
- Other (your ideas)
