Hundreds of Volunteers Make A Difference

The Spring Team kicked off third term with the Caltech Y’s annual Make-A-Difference Day. On Saturday, April 9, 265 eager volunteers gathered to participate in a variety of community service projects on one of 12 different teams. Thanks to our sponsors TIAA and the Caltech Employees Federal Credit Union “Make-A-Difference Day 2018” t-shirts were distributed, breakfasts were provided, and sack lunches were made available. The teams were also welcomed back to campus with an ice cream social. It was another successful volunteer effort. At the sites:

  • Seven students, under the direction of Zoila Jurado Quiroga, got their hands dirty gardening at the Boys and Girls Club in Pasadena.

  • Ten volunteers got active playing sports with children at KEEN (Kids Enjoying Exercise Now) led by Gloria Ha and Chloe Hsu.
