Loyola community volunteers for eighth annual day of service
October 24, 2008
Loyola University New Orleans Wolfpack pride and community service will be on exhibit all over the country for two days in November, as alumni and students participate in two days of volunteering.
Wolves on the Prowl is an annual day of service planned and led by the Office of Alumni Affairs, which pairs volunteers from the Loyola community with programs that need help. This year, alumni in eight cities, including New Orleans, will roll up their sleeves for charity.
On Saturday, Nov. 1, alumni will work in two schools in Chicago; assist in the Boston Lung Cancer Society Fun Run and Walk; volunteer at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington, D.C.; and serve women residents of the Daybreak Program at Ocean Park Community Center in Santa Monica, Ca. On Nov. 8, volunteers hit the ground at various projects in St. Louis, Tampa, New York City and New Orleans.
In New Orleans, students will join Loyola alumni on several projects. Volunteers will participate in a field day with Good Shepherd School, paint Andrew H. Wilson Charter School, plant pots at Project SMILE, clean a New Orleans Recreation Departmetn park and refurbish the facilities break room space at Loyola.
Associate Director of Alumni Relations David Robinson-Morris said Wolves on the Prowl service projects are great ways for alumni to stay involved and contribute to Loyola’s mission to develop individuals who dedicate their lives to service for others.
“In the Jesuit tradition, our volunteers will seek perspective on their service through group and personal reflection,” said Robinson-Morris. “Wolves on the Prowl is an opportunity for students and alumni to interact with local communities that reflect the reality of the world around them, and inspire them to act.”
