Annual CommUNITY Cares Day CANCELLED for Saturday, April 16

Wake Forest University School of Law students were planning a “CommUNITY Cares Day” from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 16, at Kimberley Park Elementary School but the school has cancelled the event because the weather forecast is calling for thunderstorms.

The elementary school has rescheduled the event for April 30 and anyone who is available to volunteer is welcome.

Last spring, more than 70 students, faculty and staff from the law school and Kimberley Park worked together to improve the school’s grounds by completing landscaping and other beautification and educational projects.  

 “For those of you who haven’t participated before, CCD is a fairly new tradition to the law school where we as law students take time out of our busy schedules to give back to our community by helping the parents, students, and teachers of Kimberley Park beautify their building and campus,” said event organizer Katharine Seal (’12).

“The parents and teachers are always extremely grateful for our help, and the kids absolutely love being able to spend time with the law students! ” 

Kimberley Park is located just minutes from campus at 1701 Cherry St. in Winston-Salem.

CommUNITY Cares Day is organized by the law school Youth Advocacy Group (YAG) and co-sponsored by Student Bar Association (SBA).  In addition to this event, YAG members spend time helping local youth in several other ways, such as tutoring, recreational coaching and even representation of children in domestic disputes.
