"SBU’s class of 2014 will be introduced to the Olean-area community during an Aug. 28 Day of Service. The students’ 1,000 helping hands will be installing steps at the house of a World War II veteran, painting at Cattaraugus Community Action, washing cars for a Haiti fundraiser and cleaning a youth center. Other community service sites include Mt. Irenaeus, Pfeiffer Nature Center, Genesis House, SPCA in Cattaraugus County, Canticle Farm and the Allegheny River Valley Trail.
“We will be sending students off campus as well as assigning some students to engage in service right on campus,” said Abby Cohen, assistant director of St. Bonaventure’s First-Year Experience program, which is collaborating with the campus’s Center for Community Engagement and BonaResponds for the project.
