UConn Cares 2021
The month of April is dedicated to giving back to our communities, which means it's time for UConn CaresUConn Cares is a celebration of Husky pride and spirit through volunteering in your local community. Here, alumni participants from past UConn Cares campaigns give us the top five reasons you should get involved!
  1. You’ll Be Making a Difference in Your Community. “As a dietitian I know how important it is to support local communities that aren't as fortunate as we are. I love to give back and wanted to help represent UConn in the process.” —Kelly Jones ’08 (CAHNR), Greater Philadelphia UConn Alumni Network.
  2. You’ll Serve as an Ambassador for UConn. “I have had members of the community be surprised when I tell them that we get 20-30 alumni from a University 3,000 miles away to do projects that benefit our San Diego community,” —Ryan Foreman ’08 (CLAS), San Diego Alumni Network.
  3. You Can Reconnect with Your Husky Family. “The UConn Cares events are so worthwhile, and they really allow folks to connect and reminisce with other alumni.” Betsy Rolfe ’83 (BUS, CLAS), New Haven Alumni Network
  4. You’ll Influence Others to Get Involved. “This may be the spark that gets you more involved with different organizations in the future.” —Alyssa Suhr ’12 (CLAS), New York City Alumni Network
  5. You’ll Leave with a Warm and Fuzzy Feeling. “Whether you volunteer for blanket making, for a park clean up, or working in a soup kitchen, it is such a good feeling knowing that for those couple of hours you have done something to make a positive change in a life.” —Pam Oliva ’83 (CLAS), Hartford Alumni Network
We hope to plan some great UConn Cares events in the future. Be sure to check back in the future for offerings in your area.
