On Friday, February 16, Holy Family University will conclude its 64th Annual Charter Week with a University-wide Day of Service. Faculty, staff, and students are invited to engage in activities at a variety of service agencies on campus and within the community.
“The University Day of Service is one of my favorite events during Charter Week, as it really emphasizes what being a part of the Holy Family community is all about,” said Mike McNulty-Bobholz, Assistant Vice President of Student Life. “Every year these great locations open their doors to Holy Family and welcome us in. It’s a great feeling to see everyone working together to achieve one goal, and that is to make a difference.”
