UofL and Alumni to team up for bowl service project




    LOUISVILLE, Ky.— UofL once again proves that bowl games aren’t just about football. Cardinal fans are invited to complete a service project in Orlando in the hours leading up to the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl.

    The project, organized by UofL’s Division of Student Affairs and the Office of Alumni Relations, will be from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Dec. 31 at the Official UofL Alumni & Fan Tailgate at Camping World Stadium.

    Volunteers will assemble hygiene kits that will be distributed by Clean the World to those in need. Clean the World recycles hotel amenities, reducing landfill waste while helping children and families across the globe.

     “The bowl community service project focuses on providing an engaging service event for students, parents, faculty, staff, & alumni at post-season athletic events,” said Glenn Gittings, director of the UofL Parent’s Association. “This unique service learning concept effectively engages participants in a way that allows the opportunity to give back to the community that hosts UofL for the bowl game.”

    UofL students, parents, faculty, staff, administrators and alumni are invited to sign up for the project at http://louisville.edu/student/bowlservice by Dec. 26. The first 250 volunteers to participate will receive a free t-shirt. Volunteers do not need to purchase tailgate tickets to take part in the project.
