Organizers say Temple University’s 2nd annual Global Day of Service was another success.
The Global Day of Service allows Temple alumni and friends to share their skills and time with the communities in which it resides. It’s designed to enhance community relations, engage alumni in meaningful work and show respect for social causes.
Participants cleaned up parks, packaged food for the needy, volunteered at Special Olympics, and improved an animal shelter. One of the community service events was at the Chosen 300 Ministries, which provides services to the homeless and less fortunate in the United States and around the world.
The Black Alumni Alliance selected Chosen 300 as the site for its Global Day of Service. Alliance President Tiffany WIlson told Temple Update Chosen 300 does a lot of great work in the community. “They help many transitioning men, woman and families,” Wilson said, “and we thought that this organization would mimic or mirror the mission of T.U.B.A.A. which is to give back to others, not just alumni but to family and friends as well”
There were 150 more participants than there were the previous year.
Organizers say this year’s event was better publicized within the university and included an Instagram contest.
