CHICAGO, April 26, 2013 — On Friday, April 26, more than 1,000 team members from Kaplan Higher Education Campuses will participate in a nationwide Serve-a-thon to help make a collective difference at its nearly 50 locations in 15 states. From sorting, cooking and serving food to those in need to cleaning up area parks and natural resources to helping young and old smile, thousands of man hours will be invested in giving back and showing a commitment to each local community.
Each campus and administrative office selected its own organization to support to ensure a meaningful contribution and lasting impression. Many of the supported organizations rely on the efforts of local volunteers such as those from KHEC to successfully run their programs and achieve their respective missions.
While KHEC schools and administrative offices support their communities throughout the year, in October 2012, the organization held its first national Serve-a-thon with every location devoting the same day to service. As a result of the impactful event, KHEC's Serve-a-thon now is scheduled to occur twice a year and the next one is planned for the fall of 2013.
