TU Cares Day Sign-Up (Organization)

 Get your organization and friends to come out in full force. TU Cares Day is an initiative geared towards strengthening the relationship not only between Temple Students and Alumni, but also the surrounding community, through the act of service.  

Throughout the duration of the event, alumni and students will be split into groups with 2 group leaders (1 student leader & 1 alumnus leader).  The event will end at the 1700 block of 17th Street with an unveiling of the first ever Temple Sponsored Mural that will represent the growing relationship between Temple University and the surrounding Philadelphia Community.

Following this brief ceremony there will be a block party and cookout where members of the surrounding community and participants of the event will share food and laughter, symbolizing the continued growth between Temple University and North Philadelphia.
