Students: looking for an easy and fun way to get some community service in over fall break? The Office of Alumni Relations is hosting two events in New York and Boston, and you're invited to come join us and do some good for these local communities!

In New York City, we'll perform a day of service on Saturday, October 19. On that day, New York Cares will conduct the city's largest hands-on volunteer day to revitalize 90 public schools. Join other students and IC alumni, parents, and friends at P.S. 050 Clara Barton in the Bronx. We'll be working from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

On that same day, IC community members in New England will get together for an afternoon of service at the Greater Boston Food Bank, putting together food packages for individuals and families served by the food bank. The event will run from 1 to 3:30 p.m.

While it's probably no surprise that Robin Williams has ADD but did you know that Michael Phelps, David Beckham and APL.DE.AP from The Black Eyed Peas also have a disability?

Come and celebrate Disability Awareness Month with Student Disability Services by stopping by our table on Tuesday, October 29 from 10-2 in the Campus Center Lobby.

We'll have games, trivia, give-a-ways and more. And, you'll have the opportunity to step up and pledge to be a Disability Ally.

See you there!
