Bronco Buddies: Our own SUNY Delhi Bronco Buddies engage with local South Kortright Elementary School students in an ongoing, weekly commitment that would be semester or year-long. Contact Elizabeth in the OCCE office if you are interested in this meaningful opportunity. Next semester we will be going on either a Tuesday or Thursday. If you are interested, the sooner you get in touch with us, the more likely it will be for us to get you on the bus! This is a great program! Leave campus at 2:30, return about 5:30.

Head Start: Help Delaware Opportunities raise money to purchase backpacks and school supplies for the preschoolers who are going into kindergarten next year. Whatever we raise will be matched by the O'Connor Foundation! This is open to individuals and organizations alike. You can do any type of fundraiser, just bring the money to the OCCE and make sure it is put in the exchange account. Last year we helped them get a very large matching grant. Can we do it again? Yes we can!
DELARC: Delaware County ARC is participating on and off campus with service-learning for multiple classes. Contact the OCCE for more information
Hope for Haiti: There is currently a terrible need for support in Haiti, and anyone looking for philanthropies would do well to continue the support SUNY Delhi gave in the spring of 2010. We are one of 5 schools who won the TrueHero.org contest for Relief Efforts for Haiti! Thanks to all who voted! See our message to the children by clicking on this link, or going to TrueHero.org. We have raised over $5,000! Thanks to all who donated to the Comedy Shows, Talent Show, Pancake Breakfast and bought pins on "Pin Day". The Bowl-a-thon on March 10th was lots of fun and a great way to raise funds. We are sending all funds to Hope For Haiti, designating our efforts to a "sister" school. Murphy Hall was the grand winner of the Residence Halls contest! Congratulations!
Puppies & Kittens (and Big Dogs too!) Sign up in the OCCE to take a Heart of the Catskills shelter animal to the Countryside Care nursing home. Contact the O'Connor Center for more information.
