Creighton Alumni Put Service into Action Nation-wide

Hundreds of Creighton University alumni across the nation will lend a helping hand on Saturday, April 17, as they participate in the University’s 10th Annual “Spirit at Work: Creighton Alumni National Day of Service.” This event encourages Creighton alumni to put their spirits of service and compassion into action within their local communities as they demonstrate the Jesuit value of men and women for others.

Six groups of alumni from areas including Omaha, Neb., St. Louis, Mo., San Francisco Bay Area, Des Moines, Iowa, Orange County, Calif., and Denver, Colo. will partake in the national day of giving back through services ranging from refurbishing and painting community facilities to assisting with preparations for a charity dinner. Other activities include constructing homes for local neighborhoods and sorting food at local pantries.
