More than 130 alumni, students, and friends joined the Alumni Association on Saturday, Oct. 24 for its annual CAN DU fall service project. This year, CAN DU volunteers spent the afternoon in Drexel's West Philadelphia neighborhood at Parkside Evans Playground doing painting, playground upgrades, trail restoration and graffiti removal. Alumni and students on the West Coast spent the morning at the Sacramento Food Bank preparing and distributing emergency groceries and nutrition education to families in need throughout the Greater Sacramento area.
