Hello Hofstra parents and Family, it’s about time for Hofstra’s annual Shake-A-Rake community service special!
The annual Shake-A-Rake program aims to connect Hofstra University with those in need in the surrounding community. It has steadily grown since it first began in 2009 with 50 students volunteering at six houses to last year’s turnout of more than 300 students working at 15 homes.
Led by the Office of Commuting Student Services and Community Outreach, students representing athletics, club sports, fraternities and sororities, and student government traveled around the neighboring Uniondale and Hempstead area to rake leaves at the homes of 34 elderly or disabled neighbors, more than twice as many houses as last year.
