For the past eight years staff, faculty, students and alumni have participated in Boston University’s annual Global Days of Service, a month long event sponsored by the BU Alumni Association and the BU Community Service Center website. This year 13 employees of the Office of Financial and Grants Administration, Office of Proposal Development and the Dean’s Office volunteered.
Kate Petcosky, Wanda Roberts, Sam Boadu, Amanda Tan, Julia Huntsman and Fredric Majnoun sorted, packed and labeled food that was later distributed to hunger relief agencies at the Greater Boston Food Bank, the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country.
Chelsea Rathbun, Tennyson Hunt, Larysa Malinouskaya, Lena Rybak, Katie Stocking, Elaine Lee and Cindy-jo Gross sorted clothes, books and toys for Cradles to Crayons in Brighton. This organization provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play.
These BUMC employees joined 1,346 university volunteers and contributed 8,070 hours as part of 183 projects in 92 cities worldwide.
