For 21 years, KeukaCollege 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 beganas a FieldPeriod® project conceived by Tracy Swem Morgan '97 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.
