Calling out for Alumni Global Day of Service projects
By Steve Seepersaud
When it comes time to do yard work or some heavy indoor cleaning, we can't put it off long enough. But add some Binghamton alumni, cool green tech T-shirts and — poof — the job is suddenly much more fun! (See what alumni said about our 2016 event.)
Make plans to join us April 28, 29 and 30, for an amazing event through which alumni around the world unite in community service projects. What will these projects be? The mix usually includes cleaning a park or animal shelter, feeding the hungry or planting gardens. You get to help us decide what will be offered in 2017! We're looking for alumni to lead a community service project. If this sounds interesting, contact Courtney Huff, MS '11, in the Alumni Engagement office. Project submissions are due Feb. 20.
Registration for alumni-led projects will open in early March. Save the date and bring a friend who can also lend a hand. Alumni Global Day of Service is always more fun when you're volunteering alongside familiar faces. You'll also meet great people. Some projects are family-friendly.
