Thank you to all who signed up to volunteer, sponsor, or host volunteers this year! Read about the success of our 2017 Day of Service here!
For more than 20 years, Keuka College and the Yates County Chamber of Commerce have collaborated to host Celebrate Service ... Celebrate Yates (CSCY), an annual day of community service which has provided hands-on help to dozens of Yates County non-profit agencies, thanks to hundreds of volunteers from the College and local community. With support from local merchants who underwrite costs, CSCY volunteers join hands on one Sunday each April, serving collectively to meet needs of Yates County nonprofits. CSCY began as a community service initiative conceived by Keuka Circle Fellowship Scholar Tracy Swem Morgan '98 and now stands in testament to years of partnership, support, and goodwill.
There are three ways to participate: College students or community members can sign up to volunteer as an individual or as part of a larger group of volunteers, though each person must pre-register separately. Non-profits can sign up before April 3 to receive volunteers at a local work site. Sponsors can donate cash or in-kind goods and services (such as transportation, water bottles, or similar resources) to defray the costs of coordinating this single-day event.

The 2018 Annual CSCY Day of Service will be held from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Sunday, April 22.
Student or community volunteers may enjoy brunch at the Geiser Dining Commons in Dahlstrom Student Center, from 11 a.m. - 12:50 p.m. A brief kick-off and celebration ceremony is held at 1 p.m. before volunteers leave for work sites to conduct community service from 1:30 - 4 p.m. Volunteers who pre-register by Tues. April 3, will receive a free T-shirt at check-in, and may also receive courtesy transportation to their assigned work site. Individuals or families who missed the cutoff for pre-registration may walk-in as a volunteer on the day of event and enjoy brunch prior to the community service, but will not receive a T-shirt or courtesy transportation.
