Wolves on the Prowl: Saturday, November 2, 2013

Loyola's National Day of Community Service

In the Jesuit tradition, Loyola University New Orleans strives to develop individuals who dedicate their lives to service for others. Each year, hundreds of alumni and students participate in Loyola's National Day of Community Service, Wolves on the Prowl. To view the video from Wolves on the Prowl 2012 check out Loyola's Vimeo Channel here. 

On, November 2, more than 200 Loyola University New Orleans students and alumni helped transform Mardi Gras World, located at the Port of New Orleans, into a massive, pop-up dental clinic. The Loyola volunteers worked with the American Dental Association’s Mission of Mercy to set up a one-day charity dental clinic. Nearly 1,000 patients were able to take part in the free clinic on Nov. 3.

If you cannot volunteer in person but you want to make a financial contribution to the Loyola Fund in support of community service opportunities, please click here.
