It’s a massive campaign to do good, and it’s stretching its way across the globe.
From the beaches of Hawaii to the European Alps, University of Redlands Bulldogs on April 14 will be doing their part to make the world a better place.
Hundreds of students and alumni will be participating in 28 volunteer projects throughout the United States and beyond. Most projects take place in California, but activities are scheduled in several other states and in Salzburg, Austria, too.
The Bulldogs in Service event began in 2007 as an outgrowth to the University’s first trip to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. It grows in the number of projects and participants each year. More than 700 people took part in the effort last year. Organizers expect even more in 2012.
