“Today, we have 4,000 people working on 115 different projects in 30 states and 14 countries,” explained Erik Stach, Day of Service committee chairman of the USC Alumni Club of SCV. “It’s the one day a year where we can all get together and give back to the community.”

“Because we are a community based university….we try to support the surrounding city and wherever our alumni associations are,” said Joel Hoffman, president of the SCV Alumni Association. “We feel like we have to give back to the community for what they do to support us.”
