Alumni Cares Logo

Launched in January 2021, the Alumni Cares volunteer program will provide opportunities for alumni and friends of the University of Windsor to give back to their communities in a meaningful and engaging way. Through volunteerism, local and glocal community outreach and acts of good will, the program seeks to stengthen the culture of philanthropy at UWindsor, build campus and community partnerships by collaborting to help those in need and supporting the mission of enriching the lives of students and alumni.

Help save a life: Join the Alumni Association's Canadian Blood Services Partner for Life Team

Alumni Snow Angels Volunteer

The University of Windsor Alumni Association has partnered with the City of Windsor's Snow Angels program to help members of the community who need it most during the winter months.

The Snow Angels program has been running for 20 years and many residents rely on the service provided by volunteers. Recently, Snow Angels' volunteer numbers have dropped which means that people like you are needed more than ever. This program has the potential to help over 400 residents of Windsor with their snow removal needs. We thank you for your interest in this program and applaud your willingness to help those in the community who need it most.

Visit the Snow Angels Volunteer website to learn more and register to volunteer.
