Volunteer Opportunities in March
Dear Penn Community,
Each month, Penn Volunteers In Public Service posts a list of volunteer opportunies. These opportunities are developed from the many requests we get from the community for assistance. Many University of Pennsylvania employees and students continue to volunteer their valuable time to provide service in our surrounding community. We thank you for your overwhelming support. If you would like to volunteer for any of these programs, please contact me for further information at 898-2020 or send an e-mail: sammapp@pobox if you are willing to volunteer.
Soccer: Do you have any experience with soccer? Are you willing to participate in a one- day/two- hour soccer clinic? A Boys & Girls Club group wants very much to hold a soccer clinic from 4-6 p.m. in March and they require your help. Volunteer to expose boys and girls from pre-school to age 18 to the fundamentals of soccer.
Career Day: March 22, 9 a.m.-noon. Interested in sharing information about your career with 8th graders? The Science Alliance-Small Learning Community of Shaw Middle School is hosting a career day. The students would very much like to hear about your career.
Annual Penny Drive: Now Through March 31
Penny drive to benefit the Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund. The fund was started 22 years ago by Margaret Dolan--mother of Kelly Anne, who died that year after a long illness. Margaret learned first hand the financial issues involved in caring for a terminally ill child. The fund is used to provide help and hope for families with seriously ill children. It serves the non-medical uninsured needs that arise when a child is seriously ill. Please take your pennies to the following drop sites:
Bicycles: Bring in your used bicycles and donate them to the Mill Creek Bicyle Brigade. Neighborhood children will clean/repair the bikes and share them with their neighbors.
Clean-up: Saturday, April 10, volunteer with
Parents Against Drugs to clean up the area between 49th Street and 52nd
Street from Market to Haverford Avenues. Bags, brooms and other needed items
will be provided. Be a part of a city-wide clean-up!
