On Saturday, Oct. 17, 2015, Union is holding its annual John Calvin Toll Day of service.

According to the Union website, this event will mark the 21st year Union students have been involved in community service in the form of John Calvin Toll Day.

Hundreds of students, ranging from Minerva Members to brothers and sisters of Greek life, will engage in projects aimed at helping the surrounding community of Schenectady.

According to the Union website, some of the sites and organizations receiving help are Campus Kitchen, Neighborhood Cleanup, Vale Cemetery and the Autism Society.

The event is organized by the Kenney Community Center and, as the Union website described, the John Calvin Toll Day “strengthens Union’s commitment to the city through these volunteer opportunities.” The John Calvin Toll day is Union’s largest single day of service.

Director of Student Activities Matt Milless stated that John Calvin Toll Day “is a great opportunity for students to go out into the community and make a difference while learning about a community that may be different from the ones they come from.”
