MEGHAN MCVEIGH MACIOLEK '97, P'31 '33
Meghan created the GA Alumni Community Service Organization as a way for GA alumni to participate in community service opportunities and to mentor students, all in honor of her late father, Peter McVeigh 1760. Her efforts are felt all around the country. She has organized service projects to help at Sunday Morning Breakfast Rescue Mission, Face-to-Face and St. John’s Hospice in Philadelphia and built a network of alumni to lead outreach projects in other regions. She has also helped coordinate the GA Day of Service the last two years, with events in the Philadelphia area, New York City, Washington DC, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. She organized a group of runners (McVeigh’s Runners) for the Broad Street Run to raise over $15K for Back on My Feet, a non-profit with a mission to combat homelessness through the power of running, community support, essential employment, and housing resources. Meghan is leading by example and inspiring others to continue to Live the Legacy of Peter McVeigh. She is showing her own children and all of us what giving back and a little help from “your friend McVeigh” can do.
