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.
Nearly 200 SUNY Oneonta freshmen spent their first day in Oneonta volunteering at nonprofit organizations during the fifth annual Freshman Service Day on Aug. 20.
Students volunteered at more than 15 sites performing activities ranging from helping teachers organize their classrooms to working with the Otsego County Conservation Association to remove water chestnuts from an Oneonta swamp.
Hosted by the college’s Center for Social Responsibility and Community, the annual event helps incoming students develop a sense of belonging in the community and sets the stage for ongoing engagement. Collectively, SUNY Oneonta students volunteer an average of 50,000 hours every year in collaboration with 94 different nonprofit agencies in Otsego County.
