"Shake A Rake" A Huge Success!

Boy did we "Shake A Rake!" What a great day it was for Hofstra students and the Hofstra community alike. This past Saturday, we had 143 students volunteer to rake leaves for senior citizens and clean the streets of Uniondale. We raked 12 houses, cleaned up Martin Luther King Jr. Park and helped beautify Uniondale's library and Uniondale Ave. I was so impressed with the amount of students who showed up at 8am in the morning to participate in this event. Throughout the day you could see smiles and hear laughter from both the students and the members of the community. "I put lipstick on for these guys," said one Uniondale resident who had members of Hofstra's baseball team raking her leaves. I was really proud to be a member of the Hofstra Community.
We look forward to seeing everyone at our next two events, "Culture on Wheels," on Wednesday December 7 during common hour in Plaza Rooms Middle and West, and "The Fighting Spirit," on Monday November 21 at 7:30pm in the Mack Fitness Center, featuring Cara Castronuvoa.
