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.
Nassau Community College
A group of Interior Design students at Nassau Community College entered the 2012 Canstruction® exhibit/competition. Canstruction is a global charity of the design & construction industry created to help fight hunger. Teams design and build giant self-supporting structures made entirely out of canned food.
This year the structures were on display in the lobby of the RXR Plaza, which is located near the Nassau Coliseum in Hempstead, NY. Admission to the event was a donation of canned food. Visitors voted for their favorite structure by placing their donation in the box next to each design. At the conclusion of the event, all food from the structures and the public donations were sent to LI Cares Inc.\The Harry Chapin Food Bank.
Through this activity, students learned to help feed the hungry in Long Island and at the same time able to display their artistic abilities and talents to the community.
