Alumni Lend-A-Hand

While NWU Alumni Relations is not currently hosting Lend-A-Hand service projects, please contact us at alumni [at] if you have an interest in leading/coordinating a community service project with other alumni in your area.

Nebraska Wesleyan first year students have been volunteering their time to Lend-a-Hand to Lincoln for 15+ years. We want to extend that tradition to you as an alum by encouraging you to gather with other Nebraska Wesleyan alumni in your area to serve communities where you live!

Lend-a-Hand is a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors with a common mission of addressing the nation’s needs.

Join the national NWU Lend-a-Hand event to become an active, engaged citizen in your community. By donating your time, you can connect with old friends and make new ones! By lending a hand, you have the power to do something to improve the lives of others.

To hold a Lend-a-Hand event in your community:

  1. Find a non-profit organization where you would like to volunteer. Here are some sites to help get you started.
  2. Contact jsvendse [at] to request a list of alumni in your area and to provide your information and volunteer site so that we can share it on social media.
  3. Provide jsvendse [at] a list of alumni/families that will be volunteering along with their shirt sizes so that we can provide t-shirts for volunteers.
  4. After your event, post pictures to the NWU Alumni Facebook page.
  5. Contact jsvendse [at] with a list of everyone who participated.
