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.
Just one day of giving – almost 650 man hours by one-hundred and sixty volunteers, 10 community partners and countless recipients – shows the students, faculty and staff of SUNY Delhi knows how to make a difference.
SUNY Delhi partnered with Oneonta World of Learning (OWL) and the WSKG Educational Department to host a Spooky Science Event for “Make a Difference Day” 2012. SUNY Delhi campus students, faculty, and staff volunteered as part of their annual Community Service Day coordinated by the O’Connor Center for Community Engagement.
In addition to the event hosted on campus, over 150 students, faculty and staff fanned out into Delaware, Otsego and Greene Counties. They served at Saturday’s Bread Soup Kitchen, raked leaves and did other chores for the elderly as identified by the Delaware County Office of the Aging, cleaned up historic Woodland Cemetery, worked with the Merchants on Main Street Delhi, cleaned the local parks, built a horseshoe pit for the village, and planted 4000 trees in the Batavia Kill, Greene County.
