Thousands of Emory community members around the world are volunteering Saturday, Nov. 9 for Emory Cares International Service Day (Emory Cares). Faculty, staff, students and alumni are participating in service projects in their cities in order to live out Emory’s mission of serving humanity.  

There are 35 community projects across the globe for volunteers to participate in this year, ranging from working with nonprofit organizations, civic associations, schools, parks and nature centers, to helping with homework, yard work, construction, clean up and more.  

Locally, the volunteers are meeting at McDonough Field on Emory’s campus at 9:30 a.m. before heading off to their project sites where they’ll work from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Sites include: Kittredge Park, Oakland Cemetery, Sagamore Hills Elementary School, and the Names Project/AIDS Quilt at 204 14th Street.  

This is the 10th year of Emory Cares. Emory Cares is a partnership between the Emory Alumni Association and Volunteer Emory.
