Mount United: A National Day of Service
Saturday, April 20, 2013
Alumni across the country are encouraged to organize a project with fellow Mount grads in their geographic area giving alums the opportunity to choose what best fits the needs of their community. Alumni, family/friends and parents are invited to participate. We encourage projects to take place on this date but based on the criteria of the project may be on a different date.
Saturday, April 20 projects:
(check back for more projects)
For an accurate T-shirt count, please rsvp to the project coordinator by April 10.
Projects can vary in nature but should have a focus on service to the local community. Examples of projects might include:
- volunteering at a local food bank and distribution center
- collecting trash and beautifying a local park
- painting a room for a local homeless shelter, nursing home or school
All projects are to be submitted by someone willing to take the lead role in the area of the proposed project. Contact our office with details of the project you will coordinate. NOTE: Area coordinators are responsible for ensuring the success of the project that day as they will be the on-site go-to person.
Once we know your proposed project, the Office of Alumni Relations and University Activities will work to assist you to mobilize alumni in your area to encourage participation plus will supply T-shirts for those involved. Please send us a general shirt count with sizes by April 3 and a final count by April 12 in order to mail to you in time. We ask that you take a group photo and mail to us to post online. We welcome additional photos to put on the website following the event showing your school spirit.

Intention of the Project:
It is our hope that Mount Union Alumni from across the country will proudly display their school colors and their volunteer spirit by participating in this day of service. Projects within a reasonable radius of Alliance may include involvement from current Mount Union students.
- The Mount Union Office of Alumni Relations and University Activities will provide the coordinator of each area with assistance to round up alums in their area by sending postcards to area alumni. We need you on-site to coordinate the project and volunteers that day!
