Act Local, Think Global Volunteer Opportunity – June 17

FROM CHELSEA DAY, Social Work class of 2015.
I wanted to share this with you in hopes you could pass it along to current students and alumni – Champlain College provided many opportunities for me to become involved in local and global communities. I have continued to serve both communities and am excited to share I had the privilege of supporting the VRRP and the local Somali and Somali-Bantu communities to create this event. So, I wanted to reach out and let you know of an opportunity to act local and think global! The event will take place on Saturday, June 17th. Volunteers and attendees are welcomed! A link for the Doodle Poll for volunteering is listed below, as well as the link to purchase tickets. Please share with the larger Champlain Community if you are able to.


The Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program/USCRI and Green Mountain Mahler Festival present Brahms Requiem at the Elley Long Music Center, June 17th at 4:30 PM.  

As you may already know, the drought in Somalia threatens the livelihood of more than 6 million people.  Famine strikes the country leading to conflict and need for support of basic human necessities.  Funds raised from this evening will directly benefit those affected by the famine.  

This remarkable event includes musicians and artists from near and far that will come together to raise funds for support to those affected by the famine in Somalia.  

Performances by Jeh Kulu Drum and Dance Theater, Bread and Puppet Theatre, and The Green Mountain Mahler Festival Orchestra and Chorus.  

How can you make a difference?

Volunteer at the event! AND/OR Donate! Join us!
