Over 125 Converse alumnae and current students gathered together as part of the Converse Impact Service Day on Saturday, October 30, 2010. The Impact Service Day encourages the Converse community across the country to volunteer and serve their local communities on the same day. This year marks the first year that alumnae have organized and participated in this traditional student activity.
“We are so excited to have the first Impact Service Day involving Converse alumnae to be a success!” said Elizabeth Oswalt ’02, Director of Alumnae. “This is an amazing opportunity for Converse women to utilize their collective power to make an impact in their community. We look forward to making this an annual endeavor.”
Volunteers across the country worked with local organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, local Girl Scout Councils, Shelters and various environmental groups. Many of these organizations were selected because they work towards advancing and supporting women and families, taking the lead from Converse’s mission to advance the education of women.
