Peirce volunteers: Join us for Philadelphia Cares Day on October 16

It’s not too late to sign up to show your Peirce pride and contribute to the education of nearly 200,000 School District of Philadelphia students! On Saturday, Oct. 16, Peirce College will be participating in the 17th Annual Philadelphia Cares Day.

We are organizing a team of students, alumni, faculty, and staff to take part in this marathon day of service where thousands of volunteers will help improve Philadelphia’s public schools by painting classrooms, designing murals, and creating green spaces.

A schedule of activities and registration form can be found on Peirce’s website – be sure to register by Thursday, Sept. 30 if you want to join the Peirce team!

Volunteers are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes and work gloves if you have them.  Continental breakfast and refreshments will be served, but we suggest you bring a bagged lunch to keep your energy up!

If you have any questions, e-mail team leader Jessica Quilter, or call her at 888.GO.PEIRCE, ext. 9430. Hope to see you out there!
