Community Service Update

Many opportunities for service as Volunteer Emory kicks off another year

For the 1998-99 school year, Volunteer Emory has adopted the theme "Service for all Seasons." It's an especially appropriate theme this year, as we work continuously to organize and offer a greater variety and number of volunteer projects.

So that you may communicate better with Volunteer Emory and we with you, our office has established an email address at <volunteer@emory.edu>. We hope to hear from you often with suggestions, concerns, questions and ideas.

As for upcoming events, mark your calendar for the following. All are sponsored by Volunteer Emory unless otherwise noted.

  • Fall Volunteer Fair, Sept. 14- 17, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Coca Cola Commons. Representatives from 20 different agencies will be on hand each day to answer questions and provide information.
