Hundreds of students accompanied by faculty and staff from the College of the Holy Cross will participate in the 19th annual Holy Cross Cares Day on Saturday, April 23. Service activities planned for the volunteers include painting, raking and picking up trash at schools, churches, and parks throughout the City of Worcester, and will begin at 9 a.m. This year’s event has been organized by the Holy Cross Cares Day Student Committee with the support of student chair Mary Carducci ’17.

In addition to the Worcester event, 21 alumni regional clubs have participated or will participate in Holy Cross Cares Day through volunteer efforts in their local communities throughout the months of April and May. Alumni will be volunteering across the country, from New York City to San Diego, from to Chicago to Dallas. The alumni activities that will be taking place include: tutoring children at inner-city schools, helping out at local soup kitchens, stocking shelves at a local food pantry, and clean-up of local parks and schools.

“This marks the 7th year that the Holy Cross Alumni Association and its regional clubs have participated in this day of service,” says Thomas Cadigan ’02, associate director of alumni relations. “This event gets to the heart of the College’s mission. Close to 750 alumni, spouses, parents and friends from across the country will put the “mission in motion” throughout their local communities. We are blessed with such a dedicated group of Holy Cross volunteers.”

  • Greater Worcester Land Trust (4 Ash Street)
  • ReStore, Habitat for Humanity (11 Distributor Road)
