NRHH if off to a great start with service initiatives! We have already planned to help out at AppleFest beginning on September 28th. AppleFest is held in downtown Ithaca, an annual event that celebrates the fall upstate New York weather! In order for this event to be successful, volunteers are always needed, so NRHH is stepping up and helping out this year!
Here are our events for November:
Hall Wars Food Drive and Hurricane Sandy Relief Meal Sign Away:
NRHH and RHA and getting together to put on a food drive. It is a competition between the residence halls. We are trying to get as many non-perishable foods as we can to donate. The residence hall that brings in the most food will win a prize. There is also a way to virtually donate money. $1 is 8 meals! Along with this we are holding a meal sign-away for Hurricane Sandy. All the money we make from that will go straight to the Red Cross and Hurricane relief.
Here is the link to donate virtually:
Here are our events for October:
