2016-2017

This past year, IMPACT served at a range of agencies in Spartanburg. Some of the service sites included: Hub City Farmer's Market Urban Farm, The Forrester Center, Eye Opener Cross-Country Race, Lake Bowen Sweep and The Haven Shelter: Homeless Shelter. In addition to these Saturday service events, IMPACT members hosted a Halloween Party to collect canned goods and raise money for the on-campus food pantry. IMPACT also hosted the annual Angel Tree event in which 75 children from Foster Care in Spartanburg were adopted by USC Upstate students, faculty and staff to buy holiday gifts. 

    Get Involved

    USC Upstate students, faculty and staff are invited to all IMPACT events. If you want to do more, help plan events. If there's a cause you are passionate about, consider becoming a project leader.
