100 Acts of Service was a very successful endeavor in 2015, engendering goodwill and feelings of gratitude to those on both the receiving and giving ends of the service. Therefore, we are carrying forward our commitment to the community with an elective program called #HarcumHelps.

#HarcumHelps underscores community service, one of our core values, by asking each academic and administrative department to step up and sponsor one act of service. The service can be one that reaches out to the entire campus such as a food or clothing drive or some task(s) done by your select team such as a community garden clean-up.

You are responsible for making the arrangements for your department's participation. Use the sign-up form to indicate what month you will be performing your service and to provide some basic information about the participants and the organization served so that we can keep track of #HarcumHelps initiatives. We encourage your group to wear Harcum-branded gear, your old Act of Service shirts, or something Harcum purple while serving, to build on the momentum created in 2015.

Make sure to take a photo and forward to ashumoski@harcum.edu in Communications so we can share your work with the campus community via eHarcum and social media. Thanks for helping us continue this service tradition.
