Get Involved, Give Back, Serve

As our Husky family finds itself spread across the world this Spring, we have come to realize now more than ever the importance of continual dedication to civic engagement and service. 

Thus, we encourage each of you to get involved by finding opportunities to serve!  Even though we cannot always volunteer together, there are many ways to give back. We have compiled a list of opportunities that most anyone can pursue regardless of geographic location.  You can also sign up for our volunteer newsletter here. To all of you that volunteer your time and talents – YOU are our Husky Helpers! We appreciate all that you do.
