Annual National Service Project

30 days. 100,000 meals. The Carroll University Annual National Service Project, April 1–30, 2021, continues the legacy of service so important to our mission. We appreciate the generosity of our alumni and friends who become involved by reaching out, giving back, and helping hungry people in communities across the United States. By reporting your participation, you demonstrate the significance of our mission, and how the power of one Pioneer, multiplied many times over, is instrumental in creating positive change.
