Connecting campus and community through service!
Friday, April 19, 2013
Every year since 2002, the Rosenberg Center for Student Involvement has brought together hundreds of students, faculty, staff and alumni to volunteer a day of their time, creating positive change in communities throughout the Greater Baltimore region. Volunteer groups travel to more than a dozen service sites, beautifying neighborhoods, rehabbing houses, repainting schools, mentoring youth, providing food to those in need, and more.
"It's hard to imagine a better example of UB's connections with the many communities of Baltimore," said UB President Robert Bogomolny as he welcomed students, faculty and staff during a recent Community Service Day. "On this day, we harness the power of our campus and turn it loose among those who have asked for our help.... From the day we began this project ... until now, Community Service Day has become a transformative event at UB."
Each year, more than 500,000 people received a direct benefit from UB's Community Service Day. Volunteers contribute a cumulative total of more than 1,000 hours, resulting in over $10,000 in labor hours for local non-profits.
Community Service Day will be held on Friday, April 19, 2013, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Volunteers will meet on Gordon Plaza and travel to their assigned sites for a day of service. Afterward, volunteers will gather back at UB for refreshments and celebration.
