From ‘Pro!’ in L.A. to ‘Humanitate!’ in Richmond
A tip of the hard hat and a wave of the hairnet to the more than 400 Wake Foresters who showed their Pro Humanitate spirit this month.
The first Pro Humanitate Days, also known as “4Good,” saw Deacs from 18 Wake Forest clubs across the country respond to the call to volunteer en masse. Coast to coast, they pounded nails to build a house in Palm Beach, prepared food in Houston, organized a Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Richmond and cleaned a park in Atlanta.
"We had people come out that I hadn't seen at any other Wake Forest event," said Kim Boatwright Shirley (’85, P ’13) of Raleigh, N.C.
Shirley hatched the idea to bring together Wake Foresters to work in the spirit of the University’s motto. Good for her – and for Deacs’ communities! Thanks, Kim, for inspiring us all. Let’s do it again next year. Read about 4Good here, and follow the story’s link to photos.
