The PLP Weekly
Your one stop for all things PLP!
When are service hours due?
....the 22nd! Get 'er done.
Not sure how many hours you've completed? PLP senior Juan Vallejo created an awesome web app to calculate how many hours you've logged on CNU Engage! (*This is not a substitute for logging hours through CNU Engage)
Here's how it works:
Opportunity on Saturday, April 16th:
- The Peninsula SPCA's Fur Ball is happening on the 16th from 5pm to midnight! This annual event is an opportunity to support the SPCA, and there are lots of different volunteer duties available. Sign up here, and remember that all volunteers need to be in business professional clothing!
Opportunities on Sunday, April 24th:
- The Newport News Green Foundation has been chosen as one of the non-profit sponsors for the 2016 Color Me Rad in City Center. Sign up here if you are interested in volunteering, and make sure to indicate that you're a Green Foundation volunteer! Limited spots available.
- The Banks family is looking for volunteers to help with a 4-5 hour event in Gloucester. Duties typically involve serving and clearing plates and pouring beverages, but no wait-staff experience is necessary. There are only two spots left, so make sure to email Steph at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 18th to RSVP!
Check out the Engagement Opportunities document for more information about upcoming events. If you know of another qualifying event you'd like advertised, fill out a Service Submission Form at least two weeks before the day of the event!
Earth Day Service Opportunity
In recognition and support of Earth Day, The CNU Office of Sustainability and the CNU Grounds Department are partnering to host a clean up event for Lake Maury! Lake Maury is 5 minutes away from CNU and is 165-acre lake owned by the Mariner's Museum. On April 22nd (Earth Day!) from 1-3pm, join us in collecting trash and sorting recycling along the banks of the lake! Sign up here to volunteer - time spent helping with this clean-up can be pre-logged to count towards your PLP hours! Please contact CNUGreen@CNU.edu with any questions.
Please note that Student Assembly and the CNU Office of Sustainability are also coordinating Spring Fest Recycling - while an awesome endeavor and we encourage you all to participate, this recycling event does not count towards your service hours!
