Urban Ministries of Wake County Has Urgent Need for Volunteers

John Welch, Development Director for Urban Ministries of Wake County has reached out to us with an urgent request for volunteers to work in the food pantry on weekdays between 9 AM and 1 PM.  Due to a spate of job changes, illness, and injury, they are short-handed.  The food pantry relies on volunteers to pack groceries and load them into cars of families seeking their help.  Urban Ministries provides a week’s worth of groceries to up to 50 families every weekday.  These families typically face the choice of paying rent or buying food.  With your help, Urban Ministries can continue to offer them some hope.

If interested, please contact the Volunteer Manager for Urban Ministries of Wake County, Beverly Benitez, at

Annual Durham Bulls game event- thanks to all who attended!

Thank you to all who attended our 3rd Annual Durham Bulls game event on August 23rd!  We had a great time celebrating the end of summer with you!  This year, we opened this event to the Ivy + network of clubs and welcomed over 100 alumni from Yale, Harvard, MIT, Barnard, U of Chicago, and other schools.  It was a fun evening for all!  Thank you to Zach Allen for these photos!

Triangle Yale Club’s Day of Service 2014 a Success!

A big thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s Day of Service at the Durham Food Bank!  This was such a positive experience in terms of getting important work accomplished as well as having an enjoyable social interaction with all of our volunteers!  Given the success of this event, we plan to organize this event again on a quarterly basis!  If anyone is interested in joining, please email us at, and we will add you to our list.  We will send out more information directly to you as the next service day is planned.  A special thanks to Bonnie Yankaskas for her help in organizing this!

Thank You!

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!  We were pleased by the excellent turnout for the Yale-Harvard game at Tobacco Road Cafe (even if we did lose).  Thanks for all who attended!  We hope you had fun!

Also, we are grateful for all of our new members and your support of our club!  We aim to offer great events and activities in the coming year.
