University of Rochester President & Alumni Support 540WMain at 3rd Annual Global Day of Service

We are excited to welcome UR President Sarah C. Mangelsdorf, Alumni, and Staff to 540WMain on Saturday September 14th for Global Day of Service

About UR Global Day of Service

Global Day of Service is an opportunity for University of Rochester alumni, parents, and friends to make a difference in their local communities through a variety of service opportunities led by Rochester volunteers that take place across the country and around the world. This marks the third annual global event!

 About The Work

This team of alumni volunteers will support work on our Nutrition and Teaching Courtyard. Work projects will include laying down mulch, weeding, and covering the ground with landscape rocks.  A large group will canvas the neighborhood with a clean sweep (trash pick up). This project has kept us very busy all summer long and we have been blessed to have the labor of first year students from UR (Wilson Day), Nazareth College, St. John Fisher, and other community volunteers help us get this project complete. Many hands truly make the work light!

Before we wrap up we have to give a huge thanks and shout out to Kayleigh Stampler, MPA, CFRE (08) who coordinated and planned this entire event alongside Megan Thompson, Senior Director, Regional Volunteers and Programs the University of Rochester.
