Over 160 Dartmouth students, staff, faculty, and friends came together for the 5th Annual Day of Caring to contribute over 640 hours of service to Upper Valley agencies! The day was an incredible demonstration of the potential that individuals hold, especially when they come together, to contribute to and learn from their neighbors in community.
We at the Tucker Foundation are passionate about creating space and opportunity for members of the Dartmouth family to learn through service. To hear about the many programs offered to Dartmouth students who are interested in mentoring, education, health and fitness, food and shelter access, animal care, and more, stop by the Tucker Foundation. You may also email or come by to talk with our Volunteer Coordinator, Rachel Abendroth, at any time to learn more about service at Dartmouth – find her on the second floor of the Tucker Foundation.
