I just want a few hours of service

I'm ready to volunteer a few hours each week

Host an Event

Only have a few hours here and there to advocate for organ, eye, and tissue donation? Hosting a SODA event is a quick and easy way to educate your peers and register them as donors. 



Decide what type of event you want to host. Get some inspiration.


Start a Chapter

Looking to create a lasting legacy and dedicate a few hours each week to organ, eye, and tissue donation advocacy? Lead a SODA chapter on campus with a group of your peers and host events together. 



Find a team of three students and review our resources and expectations.


Volunteer Hour Form

Already host an organ donation advocacy event or part of a SODA chapter? Submit our Volunteer Hour Form below, and SODA National will email you a signed Letter of Certification that you can share with the appropriate organization or office.

Please submit a new form for each event or date you volunteered at least two weeks before the Letter of Certification is needed.

Be prepared to submit proof of your service (e.g. a picture of you completing your service hours, the materials you created during your service hours, or your volunteer hour log with your advisor's signature.)
