As more than 150 students, faculty, and staff members took part in the third annual campus Month of Service, a similar community-service effort was launched for alumni. The Alumni Council encouraged regional associations to join the Tigers in Service Initiative; initial figures showed that more than 20 alumni groups were organizing winter projects.
The Princeton Club of Kansas City helped package donated goods at a local food bank; the Princeton Club of South Florida served meals at a Miami homeless shelter; and the Princeton Area Alumni Association organized the collection of working, used computers to distribute to disadvantaged youth, for home and school use.
The Alumni Council’s committee on community service can help fund startup costs of service projects, according to committee chair Laura Bartels Zalewski ’98. For details, and to let the University know about service projects, go to bit.ly/alumni-service.
