Community Day

Community Day 2017 – May 18th

"Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile." - Albert Einstein

Improving our world is something we can all do by volunteering for a service project on community day. If you’re new to the college, this is a special day dedicated to the service of others. Many of us volunteer on a regular basis, but now we're asking for you to step away from your normal work routine and spend a day with us. You'll be helping the community but also giving yourself the opportunity to see your co-workers in a new light. There's nothing like walking a homeless pet or helping rake leaves to open up opportunities to get to know someone better.

We, the committee members, feel like we're offering a wide range of possibilities. We’ve planned some familiar projects and some new ones too! If you’d rather stay on or close to campus, you can volunteer to help make cards for sick children or participate in several other nearby activities. Take a few minutes, click on the Projects link, then read the details on how to register. If you are willing to be a Project Leader, please let us know. We need one leader to organize each group that morning and coordinate travel to and from campus to the project location. The deadline to sign up for projects is Monday, May 15th, 2017. Please keep an indoor activity in mind in case of rain; you do not need to sign up for this. Please remember that this is for our ASC community members only and not your family.

We're looking forward to your participation on May 18th. If you were unable to join us last year, we hope you'll be able to spend time on one of these worthwhile projects for 2017. If you sign up and volunteer, please wear an Agnes Scott or Community Day t-shirt.  This year we are offering silver/gray, moisture wicking t-shirts with the Community Day logo you can purchase for only $8.00! Please click the link to order yours. Unfortunately due to lack of funding, we are not able to offer free shirts they can be purchased for $8.00 each.  To order a t-shirt please click on this link.

Read about the morning projects being offered on the Projects page, and get signed up for everything on the Registration page.

Our cake walk has been rebranded to the Sweets Stroll.  If you are going to participate in the Sweets Stroll, you must bring a baked goods item to donate, no exceptions. There is a sign up sheet for the Sweets Stroll donation.  The baked goods can be left with any member of the Community Day crew the morning of May 18th

Community Day is a zero waste event! Please make sure to bring a water bottle for morning activities. Recycling and composting bins will be accessible during breakfast and lunch and will be able to accommodate all items used throughout the day. If you feel inclined, we also encourage you to bring reusable cups for lunch! Staff will be on hand to facilitate. If you have any questions please contact the Office of Sustainability at sustainability@agnesccott.edu or x6499.

If you are not able to participate in a service project in the morning, please join us in Evans Dining Hall for lunch.  You can RSVP with this link.
