Belk College Day of Service projects connect alumni and students through hands on service. “Networking in our blue jeans” promotes connections and interaction outside of the classroom or office environment. 69 Belk College alumni and students connected through 176 hours of hands on service to our Charlotte community during March and April sevice projects. Participants were incited to choose a Belk College Day of Service project that fit their schedule and interests. View photos from the 2016 Belk College Day of Service projects.
