Southern Tier Young Professionals Engage in Community Service Month
People often think of the Southern Tier Young Professionals as exclusively a social club; however, each month, the organization engages in a variety of civic and community service activities as well. To draw greater attention to this aspect of the organization, the group has named April Civic Awareness Month. A variety of events are planned to provide opportunities for people to give back to the community.
On Saturday, April 10, STYP is assisting with a clean-up at Elizabeth Church Mannor in Binghamton. On Wednesday April 14, STYP will be working with CHOW. On Friday, April 16, the group is supporting Party with a Purpose II, a benefit for Broome County Gang Prevention. That Sunday, April 17, the organization will be out cleaning up a stretch of the Brandywine Highway, and the following week, the group will participate in the Greater Binghamton Business Show.
In addition to the events, members of the organization will be posting comments on what community service and civic involvement means to them on the STYP website, facebook page, twitter page, and individual's pages.
As with social events, the community service events are open to the public, though advanced RSVP is required. More information about the events is available on the organizations' website at www.styp.org
STYP was formed in 2002 to allow young professionals living and working in Greater Binghamton to connect with one another through civic and social events.
