30 Days of Giving 2013: Taking Volunteerism To Scale

30 Days of Giving - 2013

The holidays remind us this is the season of giving. All members of SUNY make a concerted effort to volunteer and contribute to their respective campuses and local communities. The 30 Days of Giving campaign highlights students and faculty across all of our 64 campuses who participate in volunteerism and give back to those in need. With over 467,000 students and three million alumni, we want to celebrate the impact the SUNY community has made in all of their unique community service projects. As we learned last year, 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 28

Hudson Valley Community College

Student-athletes at Hudson Valley Community College were busy this fall assisting a number of local organizations and were recognized in an article in the November 2013 issue of NJCAA Review that highlighted community service projects at 18 two-year colleges throughout the United States.

The Viking baseball team waited tables at a local restaurant where proceeds benefited the Special Olympics and also volunteered at the Albany Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure. The women’s soccer team participated in the Light Walk to help raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

“We take great pride in the accomplishments of our student-athletes beyond their participation in intercollegiate athletics,” said Kristan Pelletier, athletic director. “Members of our athletic department, including coaches and student-athletes, continually demonstrate a commitment to having a positive impact on our community and society through community service projects.”
