    It's that time of year again - Cornell Cares Day! Cornell Cares Day is a worldwide student and alumni service event that connects Cornellians to serve in their local community through direct, hands-on service projects as they swap stories and network. In San Francisco, join your fellow Cornellians as we volunteer at Project Open Hand.


    Project Open Hand is a nonprofit organization that provides meals with love to critically ill neighbors and seniors. Every day, Project Open Hand prepares 2,500 nutritious meals and provides 200 bags of healthy groceries to help sustain clients as they battle serious illnesses, isolation, or health challenges of aging.


    Please arrive on time so we can start our shift promptly at 9:30 am. We will be volunteering in either the Grocery Center or Kitchen. Grocery Center tasks may include sorting, bagging, culling food items, or stocking the Grocery Center shelves. Kitchen volunteers slice and dice whole food and help assemble meal packages. Current students and families are welcome to volunteer! However please note that all volunteers must be 15 years or older. 


    Important Information

    All volunteers must follow Project Open Hand's dress code:

    • Closed-toe shoes
    • Shirts with sleeves (no tank tops)
    • Full length pants (no shorts/capris/ skirts, etc.)
    • Hats are also welcomed for volunteers who prefer not to wear hairnets
    For information regarding public transportation and parking options, visit Project Open Hand's website here. Please note that there is no parking lot on site.

    Please contact Catherine Meng, '09 with any questions. Proceeds go toward our two Cornell scholarship funds. Learn more about them here.

    IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS:

    The Padua Dining Room is in the large gymnasium–like building in the back of the church parking lot. Park close to the large building (toward the left hand side). To the left of the large building is a driveway entrance to the clothing drop-off area. Walk down the driveway and go into either of the two metal doors at the end of the large Dining Room building. Ask for the Head Coordinator.


    Policies Concerning Volunteering


    DRESS

    Please wear layers of clothes appropriate for the season, as some task may be outside or in unheated storage areas. Dress in comfortable, loose, and washable clothing. Although aprons are provided, it is advisable to wear clothes that you are willing to risk soiling with food.


    Footwear is important. Please wear comfortable footwear that enables you to move with ease over slippery or rough surfaces and that covers your entire foot.


    HAIR

    People with hair longer than about 1” need to wear a cap or hair net, which we provide. People with shoulder-length or longer hair should come with their hair pulled back and tied, so that it can be covered easily with a hair net.


    HANDWASHING

    Please wash your hands often: when beginning work, changing tasks, using the restroom, eating, etc. Disposable latex gloves are provided but they are no substitute for good hand-washing practice.


    SECURE STORAGE

    We have no place where volunteers can securely lock personnel possessions. Purses, backpacks, water bottles and similar items should not be brought into the Dining Room or locked in your car's trunk before you come to the Dining Room. 


    MOBILE PHONES

    Several cell phones have recently been lost at or around the Dining Room. We have no place for secure storage, so we suggest mobile phones be left in your car if possible, otherwise securely in a pocket. Use of mobile phones while working at the Dining Room is inappropriate and distracting. Please refrain from using them while working at the Dining Room.

    The Cornell Glee Club celebrates 150 years with a national tour. The program will feature classical favorites and contemporary tunes.


    Praised by The Washington Post for its “virtuosic choral sounds”, the Cornell University Glee Club has come a long way from its origins as the Cornell Glee, Banjo, and Mandolin Clubs. On its national tour, the club continues its preeminent role as a leader in collegiate choral singing as it celebrates an august past and bright future. The concert program will feature both classical and contemporary men’s choral music, including this year’s commission from the Thomas A. Sokol Commissioning Endowment. The Glee Club’s a cappella subset, The Hangovers, will also perform a few pop favorites, and the program will close with beloved Cornell Songs including the Evening Song and Alma mater. Alumni will be invited to share the stage with the current CUGC in singing classic Glee Club standards and the Cornell songs.


    Concert Venue: 

    First Unitarian Universalist Church & Center

    1187 Franklin Street
