Record Number of Students Volunteer for Day of Caring
More than twenty-eight students donated their time to participate in the United Way Day of Caring Oct. 5.
The UAS Day of Caring was held especially on a Saturday so that UAS students could participate and give back to their community. Students volunteered at many organizations around Juneau, including Puddle Jumpers Daycare, Southeast Alaska Food Bank, The Salvation Army, The Glory Hole and SAGA. "I think it turned out fabulous" Keni Campbell, UAS Alumni Relations Manager, said of the event. Campbell was also impressed with the number of students who chose to volunteer. "This was the largest number of Day of Caring volunteers that I have had since my time here at the University, for the past five years," Campbell said.
