Mack Gives Back (Two Days in November)
Join students, faculty, staff, parents and alumni to volunteer for Mack Gives Back Days. Volunteers will package meals to be delivered to those in need throughout Methuen, Haverhill, Lawrence and North Andover – communities that are experiencing an increase in food insecurity as a result of the pandemic.
A link to sign up for an hour shift will be added here every October. All volunteers will receive a Mack Gives Back t-shirt.
