Colgate’s Konosioni student honor society hosted a panel discussion today on the topic of, “What is Service in Madison County?” The panel featured representatives from seven local non-profit organizations focused on community service, including Community Bikes, Friends of Rogers, Food Bank of CNY, Hamilton Food Cupboard, Fiver Children’s Foundation, Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees, and Community Action Partnership. Konosioni member Chris Noda ’16 moderated the panel, which included discussion of both how service benefits those in our community facing challenges and needs, but also provides new understandings and connections for those who give of their time and other resources.
Each of these community organizations are also featured in the MadisonCountyGives.org website, providing an opportunity to provide financial support for these causes. So far this year Konosioni has helped to raise more than $40,000 for these seven organizations; please visit the website and consider a contribution of your own!
You can also support Konosioni’s efforts by attending their annual charity auction, held starting at 8pm on Friday, April 8, in the Hall of Presidents.
