Your Hours Count!
March 28, 2015, proved to be a special day in university history as Whitworthians across the U.S. joined together and served others through the inaugural Whitworth Serves Day.
Special thanks to the members of the Whitworth family who volunteered at sponsored sites – whether you assembled a new playground in Bellingham, sorted and cleaned donations for a thrift store in Spokane, painted in Phoenix, provided general services at the Honolulu Zoo, or worked at one of the other nine locations where Whitworthians contributed 353 hours of service, working together to celebrate what it means to honor God, follow Christ, and serve humanity.
Whitworth Serves is an initiative of The Campaign for Whitworth to gather information from alumni, parents, students, faculty and staff who give their time in service of others. These hours of service may be reported throughout the duration of the campaign (from now until June 30, 2017). Service may be filled in a variety of ways, such as alumni serving on Whitworth Regional Chapter leadership teams or reunion committees; acknowledging work participants are already doing in their home communities, such as providing meals to the underprivileged, assisting in a child's classroom, or serving on the board of a local church or non-profit organization; or undertaking a new volunteer endeavor and/or participating in a joint effort of members of the Whitworth community who participate in Whitworth Serves days like the one held in March. To log your hours of service, visit http://whitworth125.com/whitworthserves.
At the conclusion of The Campaign for Whitworth, the university will celebrate the collective volunteer hours served, the total monetary value of that time, and the global impact of participants' service.
