Organizers of the Big Event at SUNY Cortland are seeking volunteers.
The Big Event scheduled for April 24th provides students, staff, and the community a chance to donate their time and energy for community service projects in Cortland.
The day of service is built on the concept of strength in numbers, to be held on the same day as the Cortland Downtown Partnership’s annual community clean-up.
Last year, approximately 400 volunteers took part in the event. This year, organizers are looking for 500 willing helpers.
Volunteers are asked to submit project site request forms by Sunday, March 20, and to register for the event by Sunday, March 27. Any individual person or organization can make a request.
Examples might include a local non-profit agency, a group home for people with disabilities or an elderly couple in need of extra hands for a few hours.
Monetary gifts, supplies and food for the event are greatly appreciated. For more information or to make a donation, email email@example.com. Or log to the Big Event on Facebook and on Twitter @TBE_Cortland.
