College to strengthen commitment to community service on Make a Difference Day
Students, faculty and staff at the State University of New York at New Paltz will dedicate themselves to the local community on Friday, Oct. 22 and Sunday, Oct. 24 in honor of Make a Difference Day 2010.
For the sixth consecutive year, the college is taking part in the national day of community service created by USA Weekend. This year, the college’s contribution includes a donation drive and a day of volunteering.
“Our participation in Make a Difference Day is dedicated to promoting a spirit of service on campus,” said Michael Patterson, director of Student Activities and Union Services at New Paltz. “The program gives our students the opportunity to be inspired to continue their service experiences past one particular day.”
