Please note: We are working to reschedule this event and will follow up with more information to registrants and alumni as soon as it is available.
Belk College Day of Service projects connect alumni and students through hands on service. “Networking in our blue jeans” promotes connections and interaction outside of the classroom or office environment.
Belk College Day of Service: Charlotte
Saturday, April 4
Jamil Niner Student Pantry
Belk College alumni of all class years are invited to join us for a service project on campus at the Jamil Niner Student Pantry. We will help prepare the pantry's inventory for a new scanning system, organize or build shelves, and spruce up the pantry's exterior garden. We are excited to help ensure a warm, organized welcome for 49er students this spring.
Registrants are also encouraged to bring a bag of items to donate (see the list of suggested items, especially fresh fruit and frozen vegetables).
The Jamil Niner Student Pantry provides assistance to UNC Charlotte undergraduate and graduate students who struggle with food insecurity. Research confirms one in three UNC Charlotte students struggle with food insecurity. The mission of the pantry is to "ensure food security, human dignity, and well-being on campus by providing in-need UNC Charlotte students with healthy, culturally appropriate emergency food. We desire to do our part in assuring that no person in the Niner community goes hungry and that every students has access to nutritious food."
Register for one of the 25 Belk College alumni volunteer spots by Friday, March 27!
