Loyal Blue Day February 19 Volunteers Needed

Posted by Tim on January 28, 2019 in Community Announcements, Event, Networking, Volunteering, Volunteers Needed

Loyal Blue Day is a celebration of UB alumni and friends that make gifts to support students. The goal is to thank donors and teach students about the ways philanthropy enriches their education through scholarships, experiential learning, technology, facility upgrades, etc. Student volunteers are needed for the Loyal Blue Day stations at the Student Union on North Campus and Harriman Hall on South Campus from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. 

All volunteers will receive a free t-shirt for their 2-hour shift. Volunteers will simply be asked to recruit students to the Loyal Blue Day table to write thank you notes to donors. It’s very simple, and it will be a fun atmosphere with games, prizes and food.

Sign up to volunteer for Loyal Blue Day
