On Wednesday, August 30th, students from the Classes of 2018 and 2019 as well as faculty and staff participated in the 8th annual MBAs with a Heart day of service. What started as an idea from a former student has since grown into a large-scale volunteer event that builds camaraderie across our MBA family and allows us to get to know and serve our Madison community.
Our 2017 event featured 10 area organizations, where volunteers sorted food and clothes, cleared brush and weeds, prepped mural panels and many more activities to assist these local nonprofits. We also successfully added four new partners this year—Second Harvest Foodbank, Goodman Community Center, Aldo Leopold Nature Center and Dane Arts Mural Arts—allowing our students to gain broader exposure to the diverse landscape of mission-based organizations doing important work across Madison and Dane County.
Thank you to all those who participated as volunteers and site captains; we look forward to making next year’s MBAs with a Heart an even better part of the MBA Experience!
