Hundreds of Laker alumni, students, faculty and staff members, friends and family volunteered hundreds of hours of service during the annual Community Outreach Week, which ended March 28.

The event is sponsored by the Alumni Association and the Community Service Learning Center.

Projects went global as Lakers who are studying abroad also volunteered. Becky Byers is a junior studying in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. She volunteers regularly with a marine bird rehabilitation center, and at a safe house for children.
