WHO & WHAT: Community College of Philadelphia is hosting a series of community-wide Days of Giving to draw attention to the perilous plight of the residents in hurricane-torn areas. President Donald Guy Generals, joined by the Student Life Office and  Student Government Association and the Faculty and Staff Federation (American Federation of Teachers Local 2026), will encourage Philadelphians to help provide the food, water, power and gasoline desperately needed now by survivors of the recent catastrophic weather events. Volunteers will be available to answer questions and help people text donations or make them online to the relief organization of their choice.

Additionally, the College is conducting outreach in nearby neighborhoods, asking residents to join its campaign to provide these life-sustaining resources. Retired faculty and staff, and alumni of the College, also will receive letters from the College imploring them to get involved.

"The point of education is to develop a sense of civic responsibility and duty," Dr. Generals said. "The world needs us. It needs our students. The objective is larger than relief. It is about creating a culture that fosters service-learning, whether the need is in this neighborhood or around the globe." Families of a number of students, faculty and staff have been affected by the recent hurricanes as well.

WHEN: The first two Days of Giving are on Oct. 4 and Oct. 11 and will be held from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the Winnet Courtyard.

A third day of giving is scheduled on Nov. 20 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. outside the Great Hall. On that date, faculty, staff, students and neighbors will be asked to donate to disaster relief efforts and help the College fill the Student Government Association's new food pantry, which provides food items and sustenance for College students who are hungry or homeless.

WHERE: Winnet Courtyard located on 17th between Spring Garden and Callowhill Streets.

The Great Hall located in the The Winnet Student Life Building on 17th between Spring Garden and Callowhill Streets.

VISUALS: Students and faculty uniting to collect donations for hurricane victims.

People of the College

I went to CCP for a while, then I stopped. I was laid off from my job last September. One of my goals was to just focus on school. So when I was laid off, I took the opportunity to come back. Because of CCP’s policies, a lot of my classes transferred and I was able to come back and only take about three to four classes. My plan after graduation is to begin at La Salle while working part time. My education is so important. I let my work get in the way previously; now I’m taking my education seriously!
I’m currently at Temple University studying Theater and Business Administration. In my high school, I was encouraged to think outside of the box and think about time management. My counselor from my high school recommended we go to CCP first because the College adds a lot of value and character for students. I ended up enrolling in CCP with a full ride!
I come from Puerto Rico, so the easiest way to transfer my credits and not have a big student loan was to come here to CCP. I was looking around at other colleges and CCP seemed like a really good fit for what I was looking for—and I heard good things. I’m glad I did.
My major here at the College is Business Administration. All of the ‘fun’ activities I thought were just for ‘fun’ as a kid were actually business-related so I decided that would be the best career to get into.
