Make a commitment to serve this year and come to the annual MIT Service Fair. Meet and talk with more than 30 local nonprofit agency representatives and find out what you can do to serve the Cambridge-area community. Learn about tutoring children at a nearby after-school program, serving healthy meals to those living with critical illness, helping recent immigrants adjust to American society, assisting victims of domestic violence and many other opportunities. The MIT Service Fair will take place Friday, Feb. 8, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., in W20-306 and will feature refreshments and giveaways.
