Yale Community Invited To ‘Make a Difference’ During Day of Service
Yale students, faculty and staff will have the opportunity to meet new friends as they team up to make a difference in the New Haven community as part of Yale Day of Service on Saturday, March 28.
Yale teams will work for city organizations and agencies whose missions include environmental education; promoting literacy; advocating for the arts; supporting homeless and transitional populations; protecting or enhancing city parks and green spaces; and ensuring youth and teen safety.
“As an enthusiastic supporter of this event, I strongly encourage you to participate and make a difference,” wrote Shauna King, vice president for finance and business operations, in a letter to Yale faculty, staff and students. “Service to society is one of Yale’s most cherished values.”
Check-in and breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday at the McDougal Center in the Hall of Graduate Studies (HGS), 320 York St. Buses will leave for the service sites at 9:30 a.m. Volunteers will work from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., when transportation back to HGS will be provided.
Yale Day of Service is sponsored and supported by the McDougal Graduate Student Center, the Yale College Council, Dwight Hall, SigEp Fraternity, the Graduate and Professional Student Senate, Locals 34 and 35, and the officers of the University.
