Tar Heel Service Day

Thanks to everyone who rolled up their sleeves and laced up their running shoes to #ServeCarolina for Tar Heel Service Day 2020. 877 Carolina alumni and friends participated in 118 contactless service projects. 330 Carolina alumni and friends ran the 5k Virtual Fun Run that contributed $6,330 to campus-based organizations. From Bangkok to Seattle, Tar Heels made masks, wrote letters to isolated senior citizens, supported wildfire relief and so much more – all to further the mission of the University through service. While we were socially distanced, we still made a difference. Check back in the coming months for details on Tar Heel Service Day 2021.
Show the world what an incredible impact Tar Heels can make as we #ServeCarolina.

Joe returned to Carolina as Coordinator of Outreach in 2019 after graduating in 2013 and spending a combined six years in admissions both at Carolina and elsewhere. Born into a Tar Heel family in Virginia, Joe has come to embrace the entire state of North Carolina, and not just UNC, as his home which he shares with his wife and son. He is earning his master’s degree studying the University’s and the state’s history. When it comes to North Carolina barbecue, Joe adamantly believes that vinegar-based is better than tomato-based, but tomato-based is still superior to what all the other states are making.
