Yale Day of Service: How you can help on May 9

All Yale graduates, students, faculty, staff, students, and friends are invited to unite in community service at sites across the United States and around the world during the seventh annual Yale Day of Service on Saturday, May 9. The event is sponsored by the Association of Yale Alumni.

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor ’79 J.D. is the honorary chair of the 2015 Yale Day of Service.

I make a daily practice of asking myself, ‘How have I helped someone today?’ This year I also ask, ‘How can we as a Yale family reach out and help others on Saturday, May 9?’” said Sotomayor in a video message that can be viewed below or online here: https://youtu.be/9Btc3XlX17g. “

Writing to members of the campus community, Kimberly M. Goff-Crews ’83, ’86 J.D., Yale secretary and vice president for student life, noted that individuals can volunteer at 29 sites in and around New Haven, six other sites around the state, and more than 250 worldwide. “When we come together as one Yale, we can create tremendous impact in our own communities and beyond,” she said.
