Celebrate the 15th Anniversary of
Livingston CARES!
Greetings from Livingston CARES!

You are cordially invited to join Livingston CARES for a Virtual Happy Hour Celebrating 15 Years of Community Service on Wednesday, September 9th, from 6:00-7:00pm EST!

You were a volunteer on one or more of our 80 Livingston CARES service trips or events, and we would be honored to have you join us to commemorate our founding in 2005 as a college and community response to Hurricane Katrina. Our celebration will include a few remarks from some of our founders and friends like Connie Rocko from Biloxi, student trip leaders Dan Martin and George Sullivan, and a quick update or two on current activities with plenty of time to share a favorite and fun service trip story in a Zoom Breakout Room with four other volunteers. We hope this will be a fun way to reconnect with college and community volunteers!

Please save the date on your calendar and RSVP on or before Tuesday, August 25th, to let us know that you will be joining us using the following form (URL: Livingston CARES Celebration of 15 Years of Service
