TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State University alumni and fans are invited to volunteer with the FSU Alumni Association’s Tallahassee Seminole Club on Saturday, March 22, as part of the association's third annual Seminole Service Day.
Volunteers will spend time at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Tallahassee to help clean, stock the pantry, manage inventory and garden. Participants are encouraged to wear their garnet and gold as they give back to the community. Meet Tallahassee Seminole Club members at 712 E. 7th Ave. from noon to 4 p.m. to lend a helping hand.
The event is one of many being held by alumni clubs and chapters around the country for the association's coordinated day of Seminole community service. The FSU Alumni Association administers a network of more than 80 Seminole Clubs and Chapters around the world. These clubs and chapters represent FSU in their own communities through events and community service projects.
"One of the most tangible characteristics passed from every generation of FSU students to the next is a sense of service — of giving back," FSU Alumni Association President and CEO Scott Atwell said.
"Over the years we have called it 'leading for the greater good,' and it's one of the most unique qualities of our FSU alumni. Seminole Service Day is an extension of that characteristic," Atwell said.
