Emory Cares All Year

Giving back to your community is a year-round pursuit—so why shouldn’t Emory Cares be one? We are expanding the scope of Emory Cares beyond the traditional day of service to encourage volunteerism throughout the year. 

  • Emory Cares Day – Saturday, November 12, 2022 
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day/Week – Monday, January 16, 2023
  • National Volunteer Week – Sunday, April 16 to Saturday April 22, 2023

While we celebrate service especially during the times listed above, Emory Cares projects can take place year-round through regional alumni networks. If you’re interested in organizing a project during another time of the year, please email regionalnetworks@emory.edu

The origins of Emory Cares

In 2003, former Emory Alumni Board president, Renelda Mack 83C, envisioned a meaningful Emory community service tradition that spanned the nation. Mack imagined students working alongside administrators at a local foodbank, while other alumni volunteered in Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles.

In 2008, Emory Cares was awarded the Presidential Award for General Community Service, the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering and civic engagement.
