Heart Truth Campaign

February 22, 2011

This Thursday, Feb. 24th, we are going to help work on the Heart Truth Campaign right at Pace University!

Crystal brought the idea to us that we should create awareness at Pace University by cutting out hearts, designing them, and write facts about heart disease on them that will eventually be handed out to people around campus.

However, we NEED YOUR HELP!

On Thursday, Feb. 24th, we are going to have a classroom at Pace University with our art supplies there to do this activity. We welcome all our members and non-members to join us create these hearts!
We are planning to have the room from 1-5pm, and we need some of our members to be there at designated times (for a shift).

Please email me back if you are able to do this! mtamura790@gmail.com. It can be 1-2pm, 1-3pm, etc.

Thanks so much! The plan is to hand them out on Feb. 28th with fruit, so if you can make it on Feb. 28th in the afternoon, let me know about that too!

Thanks,
Miki

CVM AmeriCorps is looking for volunteers that can help adult English Language Learners in Chinatown practice their English skills! Basically, we need you to facilitate conversation groups by talking about sports, shopping, cooking, business, interview skills, anything! The students are really eager to practice their English and would sincerely appreciate your help, time, and commitment! And remember, this will count as service hours.

Conversation groups take place on Fridays, from 6:30 to 8pm! Our first one is on February 11th!

This is a one-time or long-term volunteer opportunity. You can come in for one Friday or several Fridays. Pass this great opportunity to your friends!

Puppy Love

March 4, 2010

We showed so much love to the seniors at Cabrini Eldercare and Hope Lodge for Valentines Day that we forgot how much we love the little guys…. you know, the furry ones.

Join us March 26th from 2 to 4pm to help clean, feed, spend time with the cats and dogs at Animal Haven. This will be fun, sweet way to get volunteer hours.

Email dkwateng@pace.edu, if interested.
