Volunteer Day

Pioneers explore, discover, create...and serve. Each fall, the Carroll community gathers together to honor our mission of demonstrating Christian values, lifelong learning and service in a diverse and global society through our annual Volunteer Day. On Saturday, September 29, 2018, 99 Carroll alumni, students, faculty, staff, emeriti, retirees and friends gave back, celebrating our tenth annual event. As a community, our Pioneers served 500+ hours across 10 community organizations in Waukesha and Milwaukee. Thank you to all of this year's participants!
