A LETTER FROM PRESIDENT RUNTE ON COMMUNITY CARE DAY

Dear Colleagues,

This year, the University's third annual Community Care Day will focus on outreach, with students, faculty and staff going into the community on Saturday, October 15. Old Dominion University has established a stellar reputation for volunteerism, and I encourage you to take part in this worthwhile community service project.

The following is a list of just some of the sites where we will be lending a hand:

● Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia: Volunteers will sort and distribute donations.
● FORkids Inc: Volunteers will assist with cleaning, sorting donations, landscaping and leading children's activities.
● International Black Women's Congress: Volunteers will distribute educational literature.
● Larchmont Library: Volunteers will reshelve books.
● Norfolk Environmental Commission: Volunteers will clean up a small wetland area.
● Village Pointe Apartments: Faculty and students from the College of Arts and Letters will give musical and theatrical performances. Students will lead residents in creative activities that promote literacy and self-expression through reading and writing.

Volunteers will also be needed for neighborhood cleanups in Highland Park and Lamberts Point.

To register and for more information, please visit www.odu.edu/ccd.

Thank you in advance for your demonstration of ODU community spirit!

Sincerely yours,
Roseann Runte
President
