Month of Service returns

For the second consecutive year, alumni donated their time and treasure for the Alumni Association’s KU Cares Month of Service campaign, which encourages Jayhawks nationwide to give back to their communities during the month of November. Nearly 350 volunteers—more than double last year’s participation—from 24 alumni networks generously gave more than 100 hours of service to:

  • Organize blood drives
  • Collect food, clothing and personal hygiene supplies
  • Prepare and serve meals for families in need
  • Restore and enhance neighborhood parks
  • Make sleeping bags for homeless individuals
  • Clean beaches in seaside communities
  • Gather pet supplies for local animal shelters
  • Raise money for national and local nonprofit organizations

Overall, the University community received 30 awards for programs, events and communications from the Office of Marketing Communications, KU Endowment, the KU Cancer Center, The College of Liberal Arts & Sciences and the William Allen White School of Journalism. The awards will be presented Jan. 15 at the annual CASE District VI conference in Denver.
