Happy Pacegiving

News Story

Get ready to give a whole lot of thanks! The Pace Community is coming together to offer several opportunities not only to enjoy great food, but also to volunteer for local charities.

It’s that time again! With the holiday season rapidly approaching, the PLV and NYC Campus are prepping plenty of turkey, stuffing, and charity work—all the makings of a hearty and heartfelt Thanksgiving. If you’re looking to get involved (and eat good food!), stop by these events. You’ll be full of love by the end of it!

LGBTQA and Social Justice Center Annual Potluck (NYC)

Volunteer at Added Value Farm (NYC)
8:30 a.m.–9:30 a.m. | Register for details
Join Student Leader in Service Duke Huang for a morning of service at Added Value Farm! Volunteers will help with composting at the largest community composting program in the United States that runs entirely on renewable resources—human power or solar power—with over 1,900 volunteers each year. You’ll get a free gym workout, help the farm compost local organic material that includes GrowNYC’s Greenmarkets collections, create the “black gold” that grows healthful food locally for the Red Hook neighborhood, and support the environment by recovering organics that are otherwise trucked far away.

To register, please email Duke Huang.
