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.
Herkimer County Community College
Herkimer County Community College partnered with the American Red Cross to collect donations for victims of Hurricane Sandy throughout the NJCAA National Championship Men’s Soccer Tournament. A total of $767.53 was raised for the Red Cross’ Hurricane Sandy Response Fund. Three of the eight teams participating in the tournament were directly affected by the storm. Jeff Parker, Ombudsman and Volunteer Coordinator for the American Red Cross Mohawk Valley Chapter, said “We appreciated the opportunity to present ourselves to the public and to collect some funds at the same time. I was especially moved by the opportunity to speak directly with some of the victims of the Hurricane and offer my support to them.”
