9-11 Day Observance-02

As part of our civic engagement program of work, IEI has partnered with Activate Good on organizing a volunteer day of service right here in the James B. Hunt Jr. library in honor of September 11th.  We invite any and all members of the NC State community in addition to any Triangle residents who would like to join us for this special day of service.

We hope you can join us!

Volunteer Project: Make ABC Books for Kids Learning to Read

Using provided cardstock, stencils, and other art supplies, volunteers will design and create ABC books for kids learning how to read. Completed ABC books will be distributed to children in need through Motheread, a nonprofit that helps adults and children learn to use the power of language to discover more about themselves, their families, and their communities.


3:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Location: Institute for Emerging Issues in James B. Hunt Library at NC State
1070 Partners Way, Raleigh, NC 27606
Parking: If you are driving, please be aware that without a permit, parking lots may charge a fee.
