Allegany County Community Action Day, Aug. 28

Alfred State College is partnering with several Allegany County human services agencies to conduct an Allegany County Community Action Day, Saturday, Aug. 28, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The day is intended to coordinate volunteer groups and individuals to engage in meaningful, high-impact service projects in the Alfred and Wellsville communities; connect with neighbors, students, and fellow community members while making a difference; and build relationships with local non-profit agencies while actively supporting their missions.

The Community Action Day will kick-off in the Alfred and Wellsville communities in the morning and then groups will depart for project sites to engage in a full day of service. The day will culminate in a community-wide celebration and picnic on the Alfred State College campus at 5 p.m.

ASC welcomes any agency, its employees and volunteers, to participate in this action-packed, rewarding experience. We also welcome suggestions for service projects in the Alfred and Wellsville communities. If your organization has a project that needs completing – painting, gardening, minor building repair, sorting donations, etc. – organizers want to hear about it! As many suggested projects as possible will be included, but inclusion will depend on the availability of volunteers. Thus, not all projects are guaranteed to be selected.

Submit the online Web forms to suggest a project or volunteer your time and enthusiasm, or you may contact Ashley Kehoe, director, Civic Engagement and Student Leadership Programs at Alfred State College, at (607) 587-4077, or via e-mail at kehoeal@alfredstate.edu.
