Service Saturday - April 13, 2024

It's time for Service Saturday! On Saturday, April 13th, we will meet at 8:30 a.m. in the Chapel Foyer and serve around the community until 11:30 am.

We'll have some breakfast items before we take off, and a pizza lunch will be provided in the Chapel Lounge afterward.

This is an excellent opportunity to help support our Helena community and gain some extra volunteer hours. Please note that if you are a group signing up, you need to sign up individually so you can be placed at an organization.

We are the Hunthausen Center for Peace and Justice, or CPJ for short: a student-run office that strives to promote the dignity of the human person through service. Now that you’re settling into your schedules, here are some awesome opportunities to get out and serve in our Helena Community!

End of Year Free Market

The End of Year Free Market was created in 2021 as a campus-wide effort to divert student "trash" away from the dumpster and into new homes. During the 2023-2024 school year, Carroll was able to 10,000 pounds from going to our local land fill. 

This event is an opportunity for students to donate their gently used items. After being donated, the students, staff and faculty at Carroll are able to go pick out items they need for free! The final items are then picked up by local non-profit organizations which go out to local Helena community members. 

If you are wanting to volunteer to help with this event, please reach out to
