Annual National Service Project

Carroll's Annual National Service Project, held annually in April, has raised more than 319,000 meals for hungry families over the past eight years. The generosity of our alumni who are involved by reaching out, giving back and volunteering makes it all possible. The effort demonstrates the significance of our mission, and how the power of one Pioneer, multiplied many times over, is instrumental in creating positive change. Our 2018 National Service Project results follow:
