Shake-a-Rake Program Draws Record Turnout

Student volunteers
More than 180 students volunteered this weekend helping senior citizens clear their yards as part of the annual Shake-a-Rake program, sponsored by the Office of Off-Campus Living and Commuting Student Services. The turnout was the largest in the program’s history. The students raked leaves for 19 homes in the neighborhoods surrounding Hofstra.
