In 2014, nearly 1,200 Carolina alumni and friends served a grand total of 5,096 hours in honor of University Day on Oct. 12, 2014. Tar Heels rolled up their sleeves in 26 states and four countries. From Cairo to Chicago, Tar Heels cleaned beaches, visited the elderly, cheered on marathoners and baked cookies for firefighters.
To further the mission of the University through service in our community, we invite you to join the Charleston Carolina Club on University Day – 10/10/15 – at the Ralph M. Johnson Veterans Administration (VA) Hospital in downtown Charleston.
We will be working in two shifts, 10am-noon and 1-3pm:
- AM Shift: 10-Noon. Prep goodie bags that will be distributed later in the day. Location TBD. (3-4 people needed)
- PM Shift: 1:00 – 3:00. We will be breaking up into teams and visiting with the VA patients. (Team 1: Hospital Patients – Deliver goodie bags and visit with patients recovering from surgery or illness, 8-10 people; Team 2: Long-Term Care Patients – Deliver goodie bags and visit with the long-term care patients, 3- people; Team 3: Rehab Patients – Ice Cream Social for those in substance abuse rehabilitation 3-5 people)
