30 Days of Giving: Taking Volunteerism to Scale

SUNY's 30 Days of Giving - Taking volunteerism to scale

Beginning Monday, November 26, SUNY will be pinning stories of giving, service, and kindness originating from each of our 64 campuses and the communities that these schools are a part of.

With over 467,000 students, SUNY consistently takes advantage of the opportunity it has to be a significant impact in communities across New York State. The 30 Days of Giving campaign is a great way to recognize students and community partners involved in the many projects that happen all year round at each SUNY campus and their surrounding communities. The byproduct of taking volunteerism to scale is not only building character in our students themselves as they join our over three million alumni, but also to set an example of impact as the nation’s largest university system.

Day 1

Farmingdale State College

On Veterans Day morning, Sunday November 11th, members of the Farmingdale State College student veterans club continued their tradition of service and decided to opt out of marching in the NYC Veterans Day Parade, and help out their neighbors instead.  They traveled as a group down to the south shore town of Lindenhurst, one of the hardest hit communities on Long Island, and spent several hours removing water logged sheet rock, soaked carpets and moldy flooring from the homes of absolute strangers.

Buffalo State College

For the 2012 Buffalo State Volunteer and Service-Learning Center (VSLC) Volunteer Fair and September 11 National Day of Service event, representatives from 33 community partner organizations informed students about volunteer opportunities and needs within their organization.

For the first time, the VSLC facilitated Buffalo State’s participation in the September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, becoming part of the network of hundreds of thousands of volunteers who turn out each year to support neighborhoods, engage in community service, and collaborate to make a difference. Buffalo State students were afforded the opportunity to participate in on-campus service projects that ranged from 5 minutes to 2 hours. On-campus service projects included creating birthday cards for Buffalo City Mission’s Men’s Community Center, building birdhouses for community gardens throughout the city, painting boats for Hoyt Lake, and assembling comfort kits for Crisis Services.

Throughout this event, representatives had over 900 individual conversations with students about ways to serve the Buffalo community and at least 120 students were involved in the on-campus service projects during the event providing over 100 hours of service in one afternoon.
