October Volunteer Opportunities

Dear Penn Community,

Penn Volunteers In Public Service has partnered with Adam Porroni, SEAS ’08, to collect funds for hurricane victims. Sites have been established throughout the University where donations can be made. Long-term planning continues to provide opportunities for the Penn community to assist the hurricane victims. Please visit www.upenn.edu/pennnews/hurricane.php for ongoing efforts.

We have had a request from Community College of Philadelphia (West Philadelphia branch) for lounge furniture, a conference table and file cabinets. If your department is upgrading its furniture, and you would like to make a donation, please call (215) 898-2020 or send an e-mail: sammapp@pobox.upenn.edu.

In our continued efforts to be good neighbors, the following is a list of the community service opportunities. As many of you know, each month, Penn Volunteers In Public Service (Penn VIPS)  posts a list of volunteer opportunities developed from the many requests we get from the surrounding community to be partners in a service initiative. Thank you for all you do.
