About

Emory Cares Day (ECD) offers Emory students a one-day volunteering opportunity to support the needs of Atlanta communities. Through this, Volunteer Emory hopes to foster a stronger relationship between Emory and Atlanta as well as unite students with one another through service.

Join us on November 11th, 2023 at 11:00 AM in the Emory Student Multipurpose Rooms 4,5,6 for a kick-off event with a guest speaker, food, t-shirts, and more! At 12:00 PM, students will depart (Transportation Provided) to one of ten service projects in Atlanta which they selected, where they will learn about the organization, serve, and reflect on their experience for up to 3 hours before returning to campus.

**Please only sign up for one shift! Thank you!**

We look forward to seeing you there!
