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 26

SUNY Oswego

Following Hurricane Sandy’s destruction throughout New England, President Deborah F. Stanley sent a letter of encouragement and strength to all Oswego alumni and their families. Sororities began efforts in the Campus Center to raise money for the storm’s victims—some of whom were families of their own members. A fraternity organized a three-day can and food drive at a local grocery store. And staff of the Compass student success center, Campus Life and Residence Life and Housing, as well as students and other staff, met to plan a large fundraising event.

Volunteerism spread from individual efforts to sororities and fraternities fund raising to the campus-based Small Business Development Center sending members downstate in order to help victims pick up what has broken and rebuild a stronger foundation of life and property.

The sorority Sigma Delta Tau set up a table in the Campus Center, selling small red pins of remembrance for $1.  In addition, Bayshore, Long Island, will receive food collected by Delta Sigma Phi fraternity at the Big M in Oswego.
