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.
Dutchess Community College
Dutchess Community College’s Student Government Association held an International Holiday Bash in December of last year highlighting the customs, music and food of various countries around the world. The event culminated with a Toys for Tots drive.
The Holiday Bash featured dinner and dancing, and approximately 150 attending students brought a toy to be donated to Toys for Tots in lieu of admission. An estimated $1,000 in toys was collected during the Holiday Bash and toy drive, along with more than $200 in cash donations. Two members of the Marine Corps were in attendance to receive the donated toys. The event was such a success that another has been scheduled for December of this year.
