#ServeCarolina  – Alumni, please help spread the word via your favorite social medial outlet.

This year, Carolina alumni and friends will participate in Tar Heel Service Day on University Day, Oct. 12. Not to worry, all projects from Monday, Oct. 7, to Sunday, Oct. 13, will be recognized.

We are going to have 2 events for Tar Heel Service Week, 1) Helping Hands on Tues, 10/8, and 2) Central Texas Food Bank on Thurs, 10/10. We hope you can make one of these events close to you.
