Volunteers from the Student Volunteer Center worked with VINES (Volunteers Improving Neighborhood Environments), an organization dedicated to redeveloping urban sites into productive green spaces. The green farm was in poor condition due to the September flood, so volunteers helped weed out and compost vegetation, aerate the soil, dig out fences and move the framework of their greenhouse.

Binghamton University College Republicans visit the VFW Post 478 on Veterans' Day to honor local veterans of our nation's wars. We made a huge poster/card and wrote personalized thank you messages to the people who have served our country. We traveled to the VFW Post 478 in Binghamton to personally thank them and give them this as a token of our appreciation. We were excited to spend time with them and hear their war stories.
