RMU Alumni Volunteering Opportunities
One of the best ways you can give back to RMU and stay active within the university is by volunteering. Through the Alumni Association you can become involved by giving a small part of your time to our various events throughout the year. Simply by attending an alumni event or by donating food or items of basic human needs, you can be a part of something big while remaining an active member of the RMU community.
For the past two years, Alumni have volunteered at Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, providing refreshments and bananas to runners and walkers participating in the event. This year, alumni can choose to volunteer at those two tents or at any other tent/area that they would like. There are options to choose from, and due to the popularity of this event, volunteer slots fill up quickly. If you are interested in volunteering, please register online as soon as possible.
To volunteer, please visit the R4C website at : http://www.komenpittsburgh.org
Click on the “Komen Race for the Cure” tab, then the “Volunteer” tab to get to the “Volunteer Signup” page. Scroll down to Saturday, May 10, and Sunday, May 11, 2014. To register scroll through the job titles and times and then check the box(es) on the far left and then click on “signup” at the bottom of the page.
The site also provides valuable information on parking and transportation options.
The RMU Alumni Association’s “Be the Change” Volunteering Committee is interested in keeping a log of the alumni volunteering activities and hours,in addition to registering at the race website, sign in at alumni.rmu.edu/rsvp, to receive an RMU shirt that you can wear while volunteering.
Every year, under the leadership of Dr. Carl Ross, RMU sends nursing students, along with business, photography, and others to Nicaragua to help the people of the Managua barrios. These people live in severe poverty. The basic human needs of most are not met; children go to sleep hungry and most don’t go to school past early education. The amenities that we take for granted here at home, especially medical supplies, are desperately needed by these people.
Q: How can I help?
A: Dr. Ross could use your help in obtaining the following items.
