SAA Launches First-Ever Fisher Family Volunteer Day
The Student Alumni Association (SAA), in conjunction with the Office of Institutional Advancement, has announced the inaugural Fisher Family Volunteer Day, slated for Saturday, March 24.
Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and their families are welcome to participate in a day of community service at seven locations throughout the Rochester region.
“As the culminating event of Philanthropy Week, students wanted to create an event that brought the Fisher family together to help our community,” said Tina Abbey ’08, advisor to the Student Alumni Association. “We hope this is the first of many Fisher Family Volunteer Days, and that it will spread to other cities where our alumni live and work.”
