We would like to thank everyone for participating in the Fourth Annual Highlander Day of Service!

This year over 500 UCR alumni, students, parents, staff, and community members participated in 24 community service projects throughout the country (and London!).

Highlanders volunteered for a variety of activities, including food drives, beach cleanups, and beautification projects to complete over 1,455 hours of service. Take a look at our Fourth Annual Highlander Day of Service infographic to find out what our volunteers accomplished this year:

Save the Date for next year! Our Fifth Annual Highlander Day of Service is on Saturday, April 13, 2019.

Highlander Day of Service

Highlander Day of Service pays homage to UC Riverside’s national recognition as a leader in community service. In 2015, the inaugural year, over 500 participants registered for 25 projects throughout California.

In our fourth year, we are encouraging Highlanders from across the nation to dedicate a portion of their weekend to give back to their communities by organizing or participating in community service events. Suggested events include:

  • Community clean up
  • Planting trees
  • Feeding the hungry
  • Food drives
  • Volunteering at a charity run

Alumni, students, parents, and friends of UCR are all invited to participate. Groups participating in these events can be large or small—even one person counts! The Alumni Association will assist organizers in advertising to other alumni in their areas. Organizers are responsible for determining a project, and communicating with volunteers who have signed up to participate.
Can’t participate in this year’s event? You can still support UCR by making a donation to one of our projects!
