National Volunteer Week

Dear all,

Vassar continues to explore ideas and programs that foster partnership with the Town and City of Poughkeepsie. In that light, we wanted to highlight that April 7-13, 2019 is National Volunteer Week and there are several ways that you can volunteer locally during that time.

First, Vassar is partnering Community Matters 2 and many other local organizations on a community wide clean up on April 13 from 10am -12pm. We are hoping for a sizable and energetic Vassar team to help on this Citywide effort. Please sign up this week if you interested at

If you are interested in volunteering at another time or place, The United Way of Dutchess and Orange County has a directory of volunteer opportunities for the community at

And if your work group, House or other team is interested in organizing a separate event, Lisa Kaul or John Bradley can be a resource to you in planning.

Thank you for your contributions to the campus and the community.
