Celebrate Service... Celebrate Yates

Joining Hands Across Our Community

For more than 22 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 the College and local merchants who underwrite costs, CSCY volunteers join hands each spring, 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. 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 2023 Annual CSCY Day of Service will be held on Sunday, April 23.

We can't wait for the 2023 CSCY Event! Details surrounding the event will be uploaded to this site at a later date.
