March's Community Update

Posted by Jessie Lavoie on Mar 16, 2016 8:46:31 AM

Hands On

The beginning of the New Year was very busy for CU1! We volunteered 551 hours which equals about five months of a development officer’s salary for most of our nonprofit partners in Alaska! Perhaps the most exciting and popular volunteer opportunity was the Alaska SeaLife Center Marine Gala on February 13th. Nine of us were responsible for checking guests in, collecting valuable donor information and checking guests out. While this is a lot of responsibility and trust, we were so excited to do it! We even got to dress up in formal suits and nice dresses, fancy!
