  3. Bay Area alumni partnered with the San Francisco Food Bank to prep food delivery to local nonprofits. The Tokyo group volunteered for Second Harvest Japan, the country's "pioneer" food bank. They prepared and served soup for over two hours.

  5. Seattle IR/PS alumni joined the King Conservation District, Longfellow Creek Legacy Council and the Duwamish Alive Coalition to lend their hands restoring the Duwamish watershed.
  6. And the DC crew had a similar idea, helping the Rock Creek Conservancy clean up Rock Creek Park the week prior. Alumni Ryan Pope led the charge, timing it with the group's seventh annual Extreme Cleanup.

  10. Marking "Phase II" of a larger, two-part service project for Ross Elementary School, over 100 ISP and IR/PS alumni, along with staff, family, friends and veterans, descended on the San Diego elementary school for the day. The volunteers built and filled planter boxes, stenciled motivational phrases on the buildings and helped paint bricks, which were then placed around the school yard.
