Twice a year, the service committee organizes Duke in Durham Day, a day for graduate students across Duke to perform several hours of service at multiple sites. Throughout 2019, 343 people volunteered through Duke in Durham Day to provide a total of 1,029 volunteer hours to the Duke/Durham community.
