Alumni Global Days of Service returned in April, uniting Binghamton University graduates across the country in community service. The goals are to bring alumni together for an endeavor that is meaningful and fun, and to highlight the University’s collective impact.

In total, Alumni Global Days of Service had about 25 volunteer group projects led by Binghamton alumni in places such as New York, Binghamton, Washington, North Carolina and California. In total, nearly 300 people volunteered, resulting in a volunteer hour total exceeding 900. Projects included park and community garden cleanup, service at animal shelters and feeding the hungry.
