Did you know that April is National Volunteer Month? It's not only a time to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice, and support to causes they care about in their communities, but to bring awareness to the importance of giving back. National Volunteer Month serves to inspire others to find ways to take action that creates change.
In honor of the service of AU alumni in Washington, DC and around the world, the AU Alumni Association is proud to announce a new initiative. Eagles in Action: A Coordinated Day of Community Service is a celebration to promote volunteerism and show appreciation for our more than 2,000 alumni volunteers.
Eagles in Action will provide AU alumni, parents, and friends of the university the opportunity to foster the desire to lead for the greater good in their communities. By bringing together members of AU's community, with a common goal of service, Eagles in Action aims to strengthen the bond between fellow Eagles and the university.
From all over the country, AU community volunteers are planning service activities to improve their neighborhoods while wearing their red and blue. Eagles in Action service projects range from serving food in soup kitchens to cleaning up parks, rivers, and beaches to working in support of an orphanage in Kenya.
