Students, staff, and alumni volunteers encouraged to support community clean-up

On Tuesday, March 26, the Office of Student Experience is hosting a community clean-up with support from the Alumni Relations team and is seeking students, alumni, and staff volunteers to help reach its goal of 150 total volunteers.

“With a variety of clean-up time slots available between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., interested volunteers on campus can sign up for a clean-up route that suits their availability and schedule,” says organizer Mackenzie Smith of the Office of Student Experience.

As part of the Alumni Cares volunteer program, the Alumni Relations team has partnered with Student Experience to connect alumni with opportunities to make an impact on and around campus.

“Alumni on campus and in our community are always looking for opportunities to give back in support of students, and beautifying the neighbourhoods surrounding our campus is a great way to get involved and address the sustainability goals of our institution and communities,” says Rob Janisse of the Alumni Relations department.

Interested campus community members are encouraged to register for the clean-up using the online registration form. Every volunteer will be provided with a UWin swag item in addition to all necessary clean-up materials.
