#IllinoisLLAA Service Day is a day to show the world what Latina/Latino #UIUC alumni and supporters can do to make the world a better place right where they are.

Post a photo of you wearing U of IL colors or gear doing some volunteer work, making a donation, providing a free service, or doing a good deed on Sunday, October 7, 2018 on social media with the hashtag #LLAAServiceDay2018 and #IllinoisLLAA

This day was selected in honor of former Assistant Director of La Casa Cultural Latina, Veronica Ronnie Kann as it is her birthday. She gave so much to Latina/Latino/x students at UIUC. Help continue her legacy to give back in your communities.

*Photo features donations our LLAA Board gave to Mujeres Latinas en Accion in the past.
