4Good: Deacons give to those in need
Wake Foresters from across the country volunteer on Pro Humanitate Days
From Columbia, S.C., to San Diego, Calif., Wake Forest alumni joined forces with their local communities May 31-June 3 to restore parks, plant fruits and vegetables, and collect food for the hungry.
The national push to give back to the various places Demon Deacons call home was part of the second annual Pro Humanitate Days or 4Good.
For example, in Winston-Salem, Wake Forest alumni and University Advancement staff prepared the Campus Garden to grow produce to help feed the community, prepared and packaged meals in the University’s Campus Kitchen and sorted food at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina. In Raleigh, N.C., volunteers prepared 2,592 meals at Stop Hunger Now. Palm Beach and Treasure Coast Club (Fla.) volunteers washed windows, did touch-up painting on doors and parking lot markings, and helped lanscape the entrance to the food pantry area at the House of Hope in Stuart, Fla.
