Faculty and Staff Encouraged to Volunteer for Community Service Day

The 12th annual Buffalo State College Community Service Day will take place on Saturday, October 20, from 8:30 a.m. to noon as some 300 Buffalo State students provide volunteer service in partnership with community groups and block clubs. This year, students will create new parks on vacant lots on Buffalo’s East Side, refurbish parks that have been created throughout the city, clean up neighborhoods around campus including Grant Street, and continue to work at a small “pocket park” at Broderick Park along the Riverwalk, which provides public access between the northern suburbs and the city of Buffalo along the Niagara River.

Fred Howe, professor of educational foundations, and the Volunteer and Service-Learning Center invite all faculty and staff to join students in cleanup efforts at Broderick Park between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Saturday.
