Western Carolina University is expanding a traditional day of volunteer service as part of Homecoming events to a month of service spanning from Thursday, Sept. 20, to Saturday, Oct. 20.
“We will engage in volunteer service projects designed to serve our neighbors and to make the communities surrounding our campus a better place in which to live and earn a living,” said Glenn Bowen, director of service learning. “The Homecoming committee has set a goal of 10,000 hours of service to communities in the Western North Carolina region during the four-week period.”
Homecoming weekend will be Friday, Oct. 19, through Saturday, Oct. 20. Any volunteer service completed by current students, alumni, faculty, staff and family members can be reported through Monday, Oct. 22, to the Center for Service Learning and counted toward the 10,000-hour goal.
