Community Outreach Week truly demonstrates what it means to be a
Laker for a Lifetime. No matter where Lakers are in their Grand Valley
journey — student, alumni, or faculty or staff member – they can
participate. 2018 was record setting: a record number of regional
alumni clubs hosted events and more students volunteered than ever before.
During the week of March 24-30, more than 700 volunteers
participated. The largest event, hosted by the Young Alumni Council on
the Allendale Campus, had 50 alumni and students working together on
projects benefiting six local nonprofits.
