We will also be hosting both a food and a clothing drive.
Marian University volunteers will gather at 3 p.m. for a kick-off celebration in Alumni Hall–complete with our President and mascot! From there, volunteers will report directly to their projects around campus and the neighborhood.
If more information is necessary about any of the projects, I can provide additional details.
