CSUnity projects originally scheduled for this Saturday, have been postponed or cancelled due to the severe weather forecast for the weekend.

The Slice office, which organizes the event every year, cancelled their Saturday check-in for volunteers. Volunteers are welcome to complete their projects tomorrow, but are otherwise encouraged to reschedule.

CSUnity was scheduled to start at 10a.m., but the weather at that time is predicted to be snowing, raining and windy, according to Weather.com. 

Northern Colorado was put under a winter storm warning by the National Weather Service early Friday morning, with snow expected to start early Saturday and continue into the weekend.

Though the projects may not get done Saturday, the Slice office is encouraging volunteers to reschedule the projects so they still get done.

“We are encouraging groups and projects sites to look for alternative dates for outdoor projects to be completed and we have canceled check-in for Saturday,” the Slice office sent in an email to participants Wednesday.

Every spring, students participate in CSUnity, a day-long service project organized the by the Slice office. This annual event connects students to the greater Fort Collins community by sending groups to homes of community members to help them clean their yards, plant trees and visit with senior citizen. 

Many groups are working with the contacts for each project to try and reschedule their projects. Sorority Delta Delta Delta cancelled their outdoor sites, but members will still go to Woldorf School to demolish the inside of the house. Other organizations, such as the Residence Hall Association and the National Residence Hall Honorary, will be rescheduling to complete the projects at a later date.
