Greetings!

Bucknell will once again host the annual Bucknell CARES (Clubs Annual Regional Events of Service) worldwide community service events in April, during which parents, alumni, students and friends unite to give back to their communities. They will gather in neighborhoods to help with charity walks, clean up river banks and parks, volunteer at food banks and much more. We hope you will join us!
