Give back to your community while reconnecting with Laurel alumnae of all ages!
The annual Sarah Lyman Day of Community Service is a multi-city service event at which Laurel alumnae convene for a volunteer project held each fall.
For our 12th Sarah Lyman Day, we will collaborate with nonprofit organizations in Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, New York City, Seattle and Washington, D.C.
