Hartwick College Students Pitch In For Oneonta In ‘Cleanup Day’
Earth Day (April 22) seems to be getting more attention this year than ever before with different organizations urging residents to get involved in community cleanup. Earlier this month, Hartwick College Fraternity and Sorority students gave back to our Oneonta community with their Clean Up Oneonta day by picking up litter along city streets on a rainy day. The weather clearly didn't deter these dedicated students from their mission of picking up litter. This activity was part of Hartwick's "One Wick Worldwide" pledge to inspire students and community members to do something positive for the community - a "pay it forward" activity.
You can get involved in this initiative too. When you do an act of kindness (cleanup related or not) take a photo and give details about what you've done. You can share this on the Hartwick College Facebook page.
In a release, Harwick President Margaret L. Drugovich says, “'One Wick Worldwide’ will inspire, chronicle, share and celebrate the volunteer action that Hartwick people take to improve their communities – whether those places are around the corner or across the globe.”
