YSU Alumni Chapters Volunteer Across the Country

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Youngstown State University alumni chapters across the nation participated in National Volunteer Week, April 20-27. 

Dedicated to giving back to their communities, YSU alumni and friends volunteered and showcased their Penguin pride through service projects that made a positive impact.

Cleveland’s YSU alumni chapter partnered with the Cleveland Food Bank. Alumni volunteers sorted food donations, ensuring a steady supply for those in need. Members of the Columbus chapter dedicated their time to the Mid-Ohio Food Collective, located in Grove City, Ohio. The MOFC is another vital organization addressing food insecurity.

In the southern region, the Orlando YSU alumni chapter volunteered at the Sharing Center, an organization dedicated to providing food, clothing and other essential services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness or poverty. Their efforts played a role in supporting vulnerable members of the Orlando community.

In Las Vegas, the YSU alumni chapter collected donations of canned food and essential items for a charity managed by a fellow YSU alum. 

Youngstown’s Pete’s Pride members focused their efforts on serving dinner at the Rescue Mission in Youngstown.
