Community Service in Garden City

This week on Her Campus Adelphi, we are guiding you on how to become a better person. Now I expect all of our readers to be lovely people but in honor of “Adelphi Gives Back”, I think we should take the extra step to lend a hand this month. Here are some community service opportunities that are local and would love our help!


The Garden City Bird Sanctuary

The Bird Sanctuary has a whole page dedicated to volunteering. There’s many opportunities and a spot for everybody. They’re looking for gardeners, artists, carpenters, and researchers. Also college students are welcome to lend a hand wherever necessary. Check them out here – http://www.gcbirdsanctuary.org/volunteering

Garden City Community Church

·For those of you who aren’t so into birds, here’s a better option for you. The community church has outreach opportunities where volunteers have school supply drives, food fundraisers, and summer mission trips. Find them here – http://www.gardencitycommunitychurch.org/outreach/


Garden City Fire Department

For those of you who always wanted to be a superhero while you were younger, being a volunteer firefighter could fulfill that fantasy. Check it out – http://www.gardencityny.net/ and http://www.gcfdny.com/

Garden City Hospital

Calling all nursing, exercise science, social work, and even physiology majors, the Garden City Hospital has an opportunity for you! Expand your experience by clicking this link! – http://www.gch.org/About-Us/Volunteer.aspx


Don’t forget that our University offers a diverse range of community service opportunities. Some popular student organizations that are centered around community service are C.A.L.I.B.E.R and Relay for Life (all the clubs come together to Relay)
