Alfred State Students Volunteer at Hart House

Saturday, October 28th, 4 students from Alfred State volunteered hours of service working with Dave Porter to accomplish many tasks on the grounds of Hart House.

They were able to work before the rain fell and were good helpers on this day of college student volunteering.

Steven Lock, Chris Karnyski, Sam Bowers, and Andrew Vaughn: participants in Service Day.



Join the ranks of the most dedicated volunteers in Allegany County. Let JoAnne know that you can attend the next volunteer training, and she will tell you more about location and refreshments and what you will learn.
