"Be a King" Volunteer Fair

"Be a King" Volunteer Fair

  • Empire State Plaza Convention Hall (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

On Monday, January 15th from 8:30am-1pm, Habitat for Humanity Capital District will be taking part in the “ BE A KING” event at Empire State Plaza, organized by the New York State Office of General Services.

January 15th is one of our favorite calendar holiday’s at Habitat for Humanity Capital District. It is the day that we observe the late, great, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a “day on” instead of a “day off.” Volunteerism is at the heart of Dr. King’s philosophy, and the purpose of the “BE A KING” Volunteer Fair is to introduce people to ways that they can become active stewards of service throughout their communities. The greatest tribute we can bestow upon the memory of Dr. King is to invite people of all backgrounds to gather in our community in pursuit of justice and equality. Habitat for Humanity Capital District will be represented by Klarisse Torriente, Director of Community Outreach, and Vanessa Dingee, AmeriCorps Member.

Come join us on Monday!

Giving Tuesday

Black Friday - Cyber Monday - #GivingTuesday


#GivingTuesday is a one-day event - a movement - to inspire giving to your local community. The concept is simple: donate locally and share your story to inspire your social network to do the same. 

Habitat for Humanity Capital District works year-round, partnering with families in need of a safe and affordable place to call home. 

This means that every day we are building, renovating, fundraising, planning, referring and qualifying to make sure that everyone in our community has a decent place to live. 

Every home built stabilizes a neighborhood. 
Every family matters. 
Every donation counts. 

Join the movement. Give today.

One Troy

IF YOU COULD DO ONE THING TO MAKE LIFE BETTER
FOR YOUR COMMUNITY, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

When

Saturday, July 8th from 9:00am - 4:00pm

Where

7th Ave Park in Troy (at the intersection of Ingalls Ave & 7th Ave).

Who

Residents/businesses in the Hillside and North Central area. Everyone is welcome!
We will provide food and children's activities. You will provide ACTION!

What to Expect

Join people who want to talk about making your idea happen.
ALL ideas will be collected and shared, and will become the building blocks for working together to make our community better.

Make Change Happen

This is the first part of a project that has resources and will result in ACTION. If you do not share your idea, it is guaranteed not to happen.

Don't Have Ideas?

Come and listen. If you hear an idea you like, join that group.

Why

Creating change is not easy, but it is possible. This event will be led by the people who live and work in the North Central and Hillside communities. You are the people who know the community best, and you must be a part of actions taken to make life better.
