National Day of Service

United with Purpose/Unidos con Propósito(UP) NALFOs National Day of Service Initiative Saturday, November 5, 2016

The National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO) cordially invites all undergraduate students and alumni of its 17 member organizations to participate in NALFO’s 4th Annual Unidos con Proposito Day on Saturday, November 5th 2016.

The UP Initiative started in 2012 and has become one of the key initiatives led by NALFO!

In coming together for a day such as this we anticipate fostering community but more importantly seek to make a meaningful collective impact. Our organizations are so very powerful on their own, but united the realm of possibilities is truly limitless.

The goals we’ve set for this year are lofty and we will need your help to ensure our projects are full with volunteers. Please share these opportunities with your NALFO family and plan to be a part of this significant event. On that note, should there not be a project planned nearby we strongly encourage you to volunteer elsewhere or organize your own event.

Last but certainly not least, the NALFO Board would like to thank the amazing Region and Project Coordinators who have given so much of their time, talent, and effort to design these service projects. Their commitment to NALFO and their communities is inspiring.
