Alumni everywhere are encouraged to join us by pledging their intention to complete a service project wherever they live or travel during March.
UNO Alumni Month of Service is a great opportunity to:
Positively impact your community — wherever you are
Earn service hours for a youth or with an organization
Serve together as a family, company team or other group
Each person who pledges will receive a free UNO "O" flag. Take a photo with the O during your project and share it on social media with a photo or video! Be sure to tag your content with #UNOAlumni and mention the UNO Alumni Association on your post.
We hope you will join us in showing the world what the power of Mavericks can do!
Physically Distant Service Ideas
During the Alumni Month of Service, help any cause or organization close to your heart. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Write letters to residents at a local nursing home/assisted living facility
Pick up litter or collect trash, and deliver recycleables to a collection site
Assist at a shelter or donation center, or partner with youth service organizations
Raise money or collect donations for a cause important to you
Connect with these service organizations for additional opportunities to serve: Share Omaha (Omaha area); Corporation for National and Community Service (U.S.); Volunteer Match (U.S.); Give Pulse (U.S.); Idealist (International); or Do Something (youth-led).
