November Volunteer Opportunities

leaf lineleaf line

Dear Penn Community,

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

Thank you very much for your support of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on October 9. The Penn Team raised over $1,000 in support for the cause. Also, thank you for your support of the Penn VIPS/Adam Porroni, SEAS Hurricane Relief effort where we raised over $500.

If your department is replacing used equipment, materials or furniture that are still viable, please consider donating it to our surrounding community.  Send me an e-mail at sammapp@pobox.upenn.edu and I will share the information with our community partners.

–Isabel Mapp, Associate Director,
Faculty, Staff and Alumni Volunteer Services,
 Director, Penn Volunteers In Public Service, Center for Community Partnerships
