More than 200 UC Riverside alumni, students, parents, employees, and community members volunteered for community service projects throughout California and as far away as London and Hawaii.

Highlander volunteers participated in 20 projects, completing 673 hours on Highlander Day of Service on March 16. The projects included picking up 65 bags of trash in Riverside, building a patio at a Seattle homeless shelter, packing 4,592 food kits for the LA Food Bank, and planting 100 dahlia bulbs at a community garden in London.

Alumni were encouraged to give back to their communities by organizing or participating in community service projects as part of UCR’s promise to be a leader in community service.
