Building Community - Volunteers Wanted:  Emory Cares International Service Day, November 12th
Written By Aaronnette Jackson, WorkLife Associate

The Emory WorkLife Resource Center is proud to be a sponsor of Emory Cares International Service Day in Atlanta on Saturday, November 12th. The annual event is one of the signature programs of the Emory Alumni Association and has increased its participation since it was created in 2003.

Emory Cares Day originally began as an event for alumni.  A partnership between the Emory Alumni Association and Volunteer Emory beginning in 2006 led to increasing numbers of undergraduate and graduate students. The WorkLife Resource Center hopes to increase the number of faculty and staff participants by promoting the event directly to the faculty and staff at Emory and combining it as an opportunity for them to invite their families to join them and participate in National Family Volunteer Day, which is celebrated in November as well. Through Emory Cares Day, alumni chapters across the country and around the world coordinate and lead a wide range of service projects that benefit their home communities. Emory Cares is one of the University’s most widely recognized means for furthering its mission of serving humanity.

A wide range of projects are available for Emory Cares volunteers. In the past, event projects have taken place at the Atlanta Community ToolBank, the NAMES Project (AIDS Memorial Quilt), Medshare International, the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta, Project Open Hand, Global Soap Project, outdoor projects in public parks & recreation areas, reading to the elderly, and many more.
