Pass it Forward!
Make a difference in the lives of children right here in our own backyard!
It's another way of helping those in need or to do a good deed.
The SUNY Alumni Association is partnering with two UAlbany student community service groups, Circle K and Alpha Phi Omega, in a book drive to benefit young children in the Albany School District.
In doing so, they have launched THE GREAT DANE BOOK DRIVE from now until February 2nd which will culminate during the exciting Big Purple Growl and Ferocious Feast (BPG) event. Does anyone know the details of that and attending?
They are asking your assistance to collect NEW OR LIKE NEW books appropriate for Grades K-8.
Drop-off locations before February 2 are at the Alumni House and SEFCU Arena Merchandise Store. There also will be collection bins at the PE Gym during the Feast and the SEFCU Arena lobby. Monetary donations to purchase additional books are also welcome. You can also make checks payable to the University at Albany Alumni Association, 1400 Washington Avenue, Albany, NY 12222.
WE WILL CULMINATE OUR BOOK DRIVE ON SATURDAY MORNING IN THE GOLDEN CORRAL PARKING LOT FROM 8-8:30 AND THEN HEAD IN TO SHARE A BREAKFAST. IT WAS THE EASIEST LOCATION TO ACCOMMODATE A GROUP WITHOUT A RESERVATION. I WILL THEN DELIVER OUR BOOKS TO SUNY. I COULD USE SOME PHYSICAL MUSCLE HELP WITH THAT END. HINT HINT.
TO AGAIN MAKE THIS EASY FOR OUR GROUP, I WILL BE TAKING DONATIONS OF BOOKS FROM NOW UNTIL FEB 1ST AT ALL MEETUP EVENTS. AND SINCE WE ARE MEETING AT WOLF'S 111 RESTAURANT ON JANUARY 24TH FOR THE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTER DONATIONS, I SUGGEST THAT IF YOU CANNOT MAKE IT TO THE BREAKFAST DROPOFF LOCATION ON FEB 2ND, THEN DROP YOUR BOOKS OFF AT WOLF'S.
