Day of Service

March 29, 2022

Join us for a Covid19 restricted, socially distant but still incredible and important day of fundraising activities, campus beautification projects, community outreach, and volunteer activities.

The Day of Service is sponsored by the First-Year Experience Program, the Center for Applied Learning/Civic Engagement, the Long Island Volunteer Center, and the NCC Foundation


Donations and collection projects will assemble on-campus 11am–1pm in the student parking lot across from Public Safety. To ensure the safety of both you and our volunteers, masks must be worn. As a thank you for your donation, goody bags will be handed out while supplies last.

Volunteer Projects

They will learn about the method used by Covanta to convert garbage into electricity during a presentation by an Engineer from Covanta. This will be followed by volunteers cleaning up litter around the Hempstead Plains. The collected garbage will be taken to Covanta and burned to create electricity.
  • Thank you to Our NCC Heroes sponsored by The Community Service Committee created buttons (pins) to distribute to all of our NCC frontline faculty, staff, and student aides involved in the COVID testing process on campus.
