Welcome to the Princeton Association of New England - Give An Hour To Say Thanks

 

Give An Hour To Say Thanks

Celebrate the Holiday Season by Volunteering

  Give Your Time To Give Thanks  

To celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, PANE is encouraging alumni to give an hour of their time to a worthy cause. How you choose to donate your time is entirely to you. The goal is to become more mindful of our blessings. To be thankful for what we might otherwise take for granted.

You decide where, when and how to donate your time. Here are some suggestions from the PANE Board:

§  Build or fix something (an object, a system, a methodology…)

§  Clean up something (local waterways, parks, sidewalks, sschoolyards…)

§  Donate something (clothes, housewares, technology…)

§  Share something (knowledge, opportunities, advice…)

All we ask is that you let us know – via note or photo – how you’ve given back to the community. We are aiming to post all on PANE’s Instagram. Please send these to frisardi@alumni.princeton.edu  or directly to PANE’s instagram (https://instagram.com/PrincetonInBoston)

***

And in case you would like to volunteer alongside other alumni, you are welcome to join small volunteer groups in the weeks before and after Thanksgiving. PANE has reached out to local non-profits to set up informal volunteer opportunities to help underserved populations. Please see below for more information, including how to sign up:
