The first numbers have started to come in from National Wolfpack Service Day, which was held Saturday by Alumni Association networks around the country. Volunteers gathered in cities from Phoenix to Raleigh to serve their respective communities.
More than 350 people came out to 20 different locations in Wake County to give back. Several alumni volunteered at NC State’s Open House, serving as guides directing prospective students around campus. Volunteers also dedicated time at William B. Umstead State Park, even staying late to finish staining cabins. And alumni cleaned up the visitors’ center at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.
“It was the largest event we’ve ever done for our network,” says Adam Compton ’09, leader of Wake County’s network. “It was great to see our Wolfpackers, the young ones and members of the Forever Club, come out and do community service together.”
In Alamance County, five network alumni volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, logging a total of almost 20 hours of service on Saturday.
