2019 Georgia State University Cares Day
This year, the Georgia State Alumni Association and Civic Engagement teamed up to send student and alumni volunteers out to various project around Atlanta in the sixth annual Georgia State University Cares Day on April 5-6, 2019. The volunteers were sent out to projects with MedShare, Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta Community Food Bank, Piedmont Park Conservancy, Action Ministries, Trees Atlanta, Gateway Center and the Decatur Community Garden. Participants were also able to volunteer with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity’s Brush with Kindness Program, thanks to a grant given to Civic Engagement from State Farm. The grant also enabled the Civic Engagement office to host another volunteer day with Habitat for Humanity in January on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Georgia State University is committed to helping the community, and days like Georgia State University Cares Day play an important part in achieving that goal. Every year, Civic Engagement sends hundreds of volunteers out into the community in collaboration with our service partners. We would not be able to reach our goals without our students, alumni, corporate and nonprofit partners and you. A deep thanks goes out to everyone who makes it possible for Georgia State University to give back on days like Georgia State University Cares.
