Reach Out Raise Up Day of Service

Students, faculty, staff and alumni help nearly a dozen local organizations annually with projects, ranging from cleaning and landscaping to office organization and meal preparation. This one-day event gives students the opportunity to be introduced to a variety of local non-profit organizations so they can identify how to be of service during their time at Flagler.
