We will celebrate Light the Way at the University of the Incarnate Word on Saturday, Nov. 19. While the actual date of the event is months away, a lot of work and effort is accomplished by the community to create a successful and fun event. UIW invites the community to help prepare for Light the Way at a volunteer day on Saturday, Sept. 17, in the McDermott Convocation Center.

While this day is a great way for students to earn community service, the day really is a huge help in the process of Light the Way. Volunteers help remove and install light bulbs into Christmas lights that are placed all over campus and are lit on Nov. 19 through the holiday season. There are two shifts available to volunteer from 9 – 11:30 a.m. and from 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. Students, faculty, alumni and their families are invited to participate. Please no children under the age of 10. (Students must have their valid UIW ID to check in for community service hours.) To register, please follow this link.

Light the Way is an event that the whole community enjoys to ring in the Christmas season, and we could not do it without your help and support. Let’s make this Light the Way the best and brightest yet. We cannot wait to see you there.
