Community Cleanup

“Rake-a-Difference” with the Student Alumni Council!

Each semester, the Student Alumni Council hosts a volunteer event called Community Cleanup. Undergraduate students are invited to participate and can register individually, with friends, or through their clubs and organizations.

Community Cleanup is a great opportunity for students to work together, give back and “Rake-a-Difference.” Volunteers are asked to rake and cleanup the yards of elderly and disabled neighbors in the surrounding St. Paul community. In the past, more than 200 students have participated in each event.


The next Community Cleanup will be Sunday, Nov. 9, 11:45 a.m.-4 p.m.

Register online.

Deadline is Friday, Oct. 31.

Volunteers are required to meet outside of the Alumni Center on the day of the event to check-in, and receive instructions and supplies.
