2016 Day of Caring

On Friday, November 18, University School students, faculty, parents, alumni, and alumni parents took part in the Day of Caring service projects at twelve sites across Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester counties through the Trident United Way in the Lowcountry. This year we served at Midland Park Primary, Pinehurst Elementary, Jane Edwards Elementary, International Primate Protection League, South Santee Senior and Community Center, Fresh Future Farm, Footlight Players, Whitesville Elementary, Sweetgrass Assisted Living Village, Chicora Elementary, Windwood Farm Home for Boys, and the Dorchester County Library. Our relationship with some of these organizations extends back to the founding of University School, and it is neat to support and learn about these schools and non-profits in the greater-Charleston area. This was our eighth consecutive year of participating in the Day of Caring, and we contributed 500+ hours of service to our community.  Click here for the 2016 slideshow of our day!
