There’s truly no better feeling than helping someone else. Cornell Hillel offers so many opportunities to do this on both local and global levels.
Give back locally at our Charity Date Auction on March 23 at the Nines, 10-11:30 PM, where you can buy a date with a friend, your crush, or maybe just that cute guy you always see around campus. All proceeds from the event will go to support the Ithaca Advocacy Center, an organization that provides support to victims of domestic abuse.
Give back globally by being part of our Alternative Summer Break trip to the Republic of Georgia (Georgia the country!), where we hope to provide relief to regions of the country with unbearably high unemployment rates and little social support from the government, while also learning about one of the oldest Jewish communities in the world. Basically, you’ll get to explore Georgia’s culture, cuisine, and customs, all while making a huge difference. Oh, and if you’re a graduating senior, don’t worry-you’re eligible!
Help Cornell Hillel support some truly great causes, whether that means going to an event to donate, or actually being the one to go and make the difference.
