Campus community invited to join in Yale Day of Service May 13
Whether they are preparing vegetables for a soup kitchen in Singapore, cleaning up a creek in Alaska, hosting a day of discovery for young refugees in London, or planting trees in New Haven, alumni around the world will give back to their communities on Saturday, May 13 during the ninth annual Yale Day of Service.
Students, faculty, and staff are invited to take part in the event, which is sponsored by the Association of Yale Alumni.
There are more than 250 Day of Service sites around the world, and 30 in Connecticut alone. Projects range from addressing hunger, and homelessness, to education, community development, elderly services, veterans, and much more.

“Giving back to the communities in which you live and work positively impacts both volunteers and recipients. You feel more connected to your community — an important component of overall wellness and well-being — and you help create environments in which others can thrive. You are engaging in the Yale tradition of leadership, compassion, and commitment to a better world,” said Kimberly Goff-Crews, secretary and vice president for student life, in a message to the Yale community. “The contribution of your time, talent, and energy can change lives.”
