The winter edition of Cornell Cares Day, an international day of volunteer and service for Cornell students and alumni, is scheduled for January 6. We will be observing as a group at a the Goodwill of Western New York. Head over to the North Buffalo store and donation center at Delaware Place Plaza, 2625 Delaware Ave., Buffalo, NY. We will help in the donations processing and retail areas 9am-12pm.
The Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo will provide lunch to volunteers after completion of our shift.
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.
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.
