Every April, the Binghamton University community comes together to give back to those in need on our annual Global Day of Service. Students, alumni, faculty and staff take time out of their daily schedules to focus on making others' lives a little easier. Projects being undertaken this year range from feeding the hungry to impacting the lives of children with cancer. Want to get involved? Scroll down to see the projects happening near you! This year's Global Day of Service takes place during the weekend of April 27-29 in various cities around the globe.
Prepare Sunrise Day Camp before children arrive. Grab a rake, sandpaper or a paint brush and help us beautify this meaningful space.
Alumni and staff will work together as they cut, chop, peel and prepare food at D.C’s Central Kitchen. At the end of the morning’s work, the organization will provide all of our volunteers with lunch.
Alumni will gather at the Broome County Humane Society as we help with their spring cleanup! We’re doing yard work, cleaning and organizing!
We're planting a variety of specially selected species of trees across Binghamton’s campus. Volunteers will meet at the Peace Quad for a quick briefing, head to their tree site and get planting!

Spruce up the Ross Park Zoo for the upcoming season by painting pavilions, mulching play areas and helping with general beautification...and see a monkey or two!

Develop the urban farm by digging pathways to raise garden beds, participating in farm cleanup and spreading compost on the beds.
You’ll make the seniors at the Lott Residence's day when you “go fishing” with us. We’re decorating all the “fish” (coloring books, paper plates, etc.) you could possibly imagine. Experience needed? A great imagination and a light heart!

Volunteers can join one of three community groups and participate by cleaning up a park, planting trees or beautifying a neighborhood. Volunteers who show their "Spring Cleaning" buttons will receive free admission to venues in Roger Williams Park, discounts and free stuff at select local businesses.

You'll make a difference in the lives of many when you join with the JARC and spend time, play games and serve refreshments to these amazing children.
Help us make soft yarn princess-style wigs for children with cancer in the styles of Rapunzel, Ariel and Elsa. No knowledge of crocheting is necessary. Last year, wigs were delivered locally to two cancer centers in the Baltimore area.

Alumni will collect care packages from local donors for children and families in need. Volunteers will then package each with homemade cards for the recipients.
