We thank the several CLC, AUC, U of A alumni – plus one future alumna – and students who participated!

20150530_132122On Saturday, May 30, we kicked off the Do Great Things “Summer of Service” campaign for the University of Alberta right here in Camrose! Two teams of University of Alberta, Augustana Campus, and Camrose Lutheran College alumni – as well as one Future Alumna! – joined in to build a Habitat for Humanity.

The Summer of Service aims to inspire the 260,000+ University of Alberta alumni across the globe to support or initiate voluntary service in their local communities. Now in its second year, Summer of Service has organized events in Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary, High River, Lethbridge, Vancouver, Toronto, San Francisco, Hong Kong, and in Camrose.

ALUM-DGT-2The projects this year include five Habitat for Humanity builds, five park cleanups, a food bank packing session, a day in the soup kitchen, and a charity run raising funds for brain cancer research. Summer of Service is part of the Alumni Volunteer Challenge which hopes to engage U of A alumni in 2,015 volunteer experiences during its 2015 centenary year.

We thank the several CLC, AUC, U of A alumni and students who participated! They are part of an international community of U of A graduates who donated their time to a greater cause and give back to our communities.

Thank you for making a difference. Register for other summer of service events here:  http://alumni.ualberta.ca/volunteer/summer-of-service
