Calling all Volunteers!

The Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo is proud to collaborate with Cornell in Buffalo affiliate the Partnership for the Public Good as they facilitate educational workshops throughout the community. The PPG is offering monthly budgeting and personal finance workshops for individual instruction and coaching. Participants receive one on one feedback and are able to work on personal financial goals – debt reduction, savings and retirement planning, or creating a monthly budget. 
Partnership for the Public Good
The PPG has asked for Cornell Alumni volunteers to assist as coaches – so that each participant can receive the personal attention of their own tutor. Volunteers will be given curriculum and coaching guides, to facilitate consistency among coaches. Volunteers may sign up monthly or sporadically for these 2 hour workshops. 
 
Email Catherine March at catherineamarch@gmail.com for questions or to sign up to assist with this opportunity.

Cornell Cares Day – Volunteer at The Teacher’s Desk – Saturday, January 7

Saturday, January 7 – 9 AM – Noon

22 Northhampton St. Buffalo, NY

During the 2017 “Cornell Cares Day” the Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo will volunteer at The Teacher’s Desk. The Teacher’s Desk is the store where teachers shop free for books, school supplies and teacher resources for students in their classrooms. Its mission is to distribute free school supplies to students in need, to encourage teachers and to provide purpose through volunteerism. See www.theteachersdesk.org for more information.

The Cornell team help sort warehouse inventory and stock the store shelves. The Club will provide lunch after we finish our work.
